Abstract

Nanoindentation tests of Pd40Cu30Ni10P20 bulk metallic glass were performed over a wide range of indentation rates (from 0.04 up to 6.4 mN s−1) under the standard load control mode. New results using the feedback displacement control mode are also presented. The dependence of the pop-in formation on the loading rate is investigated. Variations in hardness and reduced elastic modulus as a function of the indentation rate are observed. A softening effect occurs when increasing the loading rate. This is explained by the differences in plastic deformation achieved at different indentation rates. The displacement control mode was used to avoid the shear localization of the free volume, leading to the almost complete absence of pop-ins along the loading curve. The obtained results suggest that plastic flow in bulk metallic glasses is governed by the rate of creation of free volume, which depends on the strain rate and its localization into shear bands.
