The effect of precipitation of quasicrystals on the mechanical properties of Ti-based bulk metallic glasses (BMG) was studied. The BMG crystallized enabling the fabrication of quasicrystal-reinforced BMG matrix composite. It was found that the fracture strength and global strain increased for partially crystallized BMG.
