Microalloying boron carbide with silicon to achieve dramatically improved ductility
(American Chemical Society, 2014)
Boron carbide (B4C) is a hard material whose value for extended engineering applications such as body armor is limited by its brittleness under impact. To improve the ductility while retaining hardness, we used density ...
Predicted optimum composition for the glass-forming ability of bulk amorphous alloys: Application to Cu–Zr–Al
(American Chemical Society, 2012)
Metallic glasses have been established to have unique properties such as ductility, toughness, and soft magnetism with promising engineering applications. However, the glass-forming ability (GFA) has not been sufficient ...
