Summary

The vibrating-reed technique has been used to investigate the relaxation and transformation behavior of several Zr-Ti-Cu-Ni-Be and Zr-Cu-Ni-Al bulk metallic glasses. Among the different aspects and effects studied, we present and discuss selected results on (a) Young’s modulus changes during different types of structural relaxation and phase transformations and (b) the development of hydrogen-induced damping spectra (as a function of temperature), measured at various hydrogen concentrations in the different stages of transformation. Concerning these hydrogen relaxation spectra, we particularly consider the characteristics of the recently observed damping peak in the quasicrystalline Zr-Cu-Ni-Al phase as compared to its amorphous state.
