The effects of structural relaxation and partial crystallization on the mechanical property of the Ti40Zr29Cu9Ni 8Be14 bulk metallic glass (BMG) have been investigated. The atomic structure of the as-cast Ti40Zr29Cu 9Ni8Be14 metallic glass transforms into a more relaxed state at the temperature region of 452-585 K, below the crystallization onset temperature of 631 K. Stable icosahedral phase forms in the amorphous matrix by growth of the pre-existing nuclei in the amorphous matrix during first crystallization step. The compressive plastic strain of the as-cast Ti 40Zr29Cu9Ni8Be14 BMG is 6.7 %, and decreases when the structural relaxation occurs. However, the plastic strain increases when a few nanometer size icosahedral phase particles form in the amorphous matrix by the partial crystallization treatment.
