The mechanical properties of amorphous alloy are greatly influenced by the thermal treatment of its melt before rapid quenching. The strength and the fracture toughness of some amorphous alloys obtained after melt beating above the melt critical temperature T-CR are essentially higher than those obtained from melts that were not heated above T-CR. This difference is considered to be caused by changes in the melt atomic structure under heating above T-CR. (C) 1997 Elsevier Science S.A.
