Abstract

Reverse Monte Carlo (RMC) simulation has recently been used for modelling the atomic level structure of several amorphous metallic alloys. Using the particle configuraitons that were provided by the RMC calculations, characteristics of the short-range structure were evaluated. Standard (Metropolis) Monte Carlo simulations on hard sphere systems mimicking three of the metallic glassy materials modelled by RMC have also been carried out. Particle configurations obtained by these two methods were compared. It was shown that dense random packing of hard spheres is most similar to "real" metallic glassy structures when the chemical nature of the components differs the least.
