A phase-field model is presented for phase transformations in glass forming alloys. The competitions among stable and metastable phases are simulated for Cu-Zr alloys. The free-energy density is developed from atomistic calculations and thermodynamic modeling and some kinetic properties are extracted from molecular dynamics simulations. The simulation results provide a better understanding of the influences of the underlying thermodynamic and kinetic factors.
