Amorphous Materials

Pp. 21-30 (10)

Alexander D. Pogrebnjak and Vyacheslav M. Beresnev


A definition of amorphous material is presented. It is considered as a transition from an amorphous to a nanocrystalline state. An atomic structure of amorphous body is considered. Mechanisms and classes of amorphous bodies, which are genetically bound with crystals or liquids, are briefly described. Methods employed for an investigation of the amorphous structure are described. A atomic structure of glasses is considered from the point of view of radial distribution functions (RDF). A model of atomic structure free volume for the amorphous materials is presented. Properties of amorphous materials are briefly described.


Polycluster, models properties of amorphous metallic.
