Atomistic view of thin Ni/Ni3Al (0 0 1) under uniaxial tension of twist grain boundaries
Atomic motion and the structure response of grain boundaries (GBs) are essential to the plastic deformation of small-volume polycrystal systems, especially for thin materials that exhibit some dramatic characteristics. Here, the microstructure and properties of thin Ni/Ni3Al (0 0 1) with the uniaxial tension of twist GBs are investigated using molecular dynamics (MD) simulations with an embedded atom (EAM) potential. We find that low angle twist GB dislocations propagate mainly from the corners to the center of the interface, and for high angle twist GBs they originate from the edge of the interface but do not extend to the center. In the process of plastic deformation, both low angle and high angle twist GB fractures occur in the center of the interface, which is completely different from the situation of thick materials reported by other references. More interestingly, the fracture patterns between low angle and high angle twist GBs exhibit extremely different performance due to the different characteristics of the initial dislocation structures in the interfaces. © 2014 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
