Molecular dynamics simulations based on plastic crystal model were performed for the Fe69.0Nb10.3B20.7 and Zr 57.1Ni28.6Al14.3 alloys to investigate their forming ability and features of the noncrystalline structures. The Fe 69.0Nb10.3B20.7 and Zr57.1Ni 28.6Al14.3 alloys were created from C6Cr 23 and Ti4Ni2O structures, respectively, by assuming the presence of hypothetical clusters in the crystalline structures under a treatment that the clusters and glue atoms are regarded as the components. The analysis with total pair-distribution function, g(r), revealed that these alloys have high tendencies to form noncrystalline structures while their partial g(r) profiles for pairs among components showed the presence of medium range order. Cluster packed structures from bcc derivative compounds cause high forming ability of noncrystalline structure and the medium range order in the noncrystalline structure.
