Abstract: Bulk metallic glasses (BMGs) demonstrate different deformation behavior under varying loading conditions. In the present work, a Zr57Cu20Al10Ni8Ti5 (atomic percent, at.%) BMG was subjected to a mixed-mode (I/II) loading condition by tailoring double-side notches. The findings show stable plastic-flow plateau stages in the loading-displacement curves, and this phenomenon is different from other notched BMG specimens with predominant-mode-I failure. More importantly, due to the stress concentrations between two notches, most of the slip events with large load drops occur on the fracture plane, resulting in a wide smooth region consisting of several shear steps on the fracture surface. We show that despite different deformation behavior, the specimens still display slip-size statistics of the plastic flow, which are similar to those seen in compression tests. The present findings give more insight into the deformation behavior/mechanisms of BMGs under varying loading conditions for practical structural applications.
