Abstract

The influence of different microstructures of La-based fully amorphous samples and its composites on the impact fracture energy were investigated and discussed. Results showed improvement in fracture energy of glassy metals with intermetallic phases, but deteriorated in the presence of dendrite phases and high volume % of crystalline phases.
