Abstract

The strengthening behavior of an amorphous matrix composite was analyzed which was reinforced with micron-sized crystalline phases during quasistatic compression. The strengthening phenomena occurred due to homogeneous precipitation of nanocrystallites from amorphous matrix. The quasistatic deformation promoted homogeneous precipitation of nanocrystallites which served as reinforcing phase according to molecular dynamics simulation. The strengthening mechanism operating in amorphous matrix composite was also proposed.
