A new technique for the production of nanograined alloys from rapidly quenched amorphous ribbons by serial electric pulses has been proposed recently . The present work involves a theoretical study of electric current flow in a nonhomogeneous Ti2NiCu alloy consisting of an amorphous matrix with a crystalline phase of spherical morphology embedded in it. The electric current density distribution was calculated in the vicinity of a spherical nucleus, which has an electrical resistance that is only 0.4 times that of the amorphous matrix. The calculation of Joule heat density was done in the nucleus and in the amorphous volume surrounding it. It was shown that during the current pulse the Joule heat evolution in nucleus exceeds one in equatorial region in matrix, but less than near the poles. The dependence of relative resistivity of nonhomogeneous amorphous-crystalline alloy on volume fraction of spherical crystalline nuclei was calculated. © 2016 Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.
