The main purpose of this paper is to summarize current theoretical and experimental knowledge regarding the mechanical properties of metallic glasses and, if possible, comment on their significance. In particularly, elasticity, anelasticity, stress-relaxation, creep, microhardness, fatigue and fracture are considered, and the ″free-volume″ and ″entropy″ models of plastic flow are critically discussed.
