Liquidmetal-1 (LM-1, Zr41.25Ti13.75Cu12.5Ni10Be22.5) is a bulk metallic glass that can be processed in large thicknesses (e.g. 10 mm) because of its low critical cooling rate (e.g. 1 K/s). Like other bulk metallic glasses, this material exhibits near theoretical strength and large elastic strains (~2%) under quasi-static loading conditions. In this work, the Split-Hopkinson Pressure Bar (SHPB) was employed to perform high strain-rate compression tests on annealed LM-1. An ultrahigh-speed camera was also employed to perform in-situ video of the deformation process of the experiments, and the macroscopic fracture behavior was examined after testing. In addition, a new insert design was developed to reduce the effects of stress concentrations on the specimen. SHPB testing, combined with in-situ video, was performed on as-cast LM-1 using this new experimental configuration to determine the failure modes. The results of these experiments are compared to previous results to understand better the effects of stress concentration on high strain-rate behavior of bulk metallic glass.
