Its adaptation to casting of bulk amorphous alloy strip necessitates matching of the thermal and mechanical behaviour of the cooling multi-component melt to the requirements (especially cooling rate, and strip exit temperature and thermal gradient) of vitrification. Using a dedicated control volume numerical model of TRC, simulation of the casting of 2 mm thick Vit 1 (Zr41.2Ti13.8Cu12.5Ni10Be22.5) alloy strip shows that the acceptable casting speeds are in the range 2.5 to 3.5 cm/s. The effects of varying strip thickness and strip-roll heat transfer coefficient (HTC) on this casting window are assessed. The differences between modelling of conventional alloy solidification and metallic glass formation are presented.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Springer||Copyright (published version):||2009 Springer||Keywords:||Twin Roll casting;Bulk Metallic Glass;Vit 1||DOI:||10.1007/s12666-009-0057-2||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
