Effect of crystal orientation on the size effects of nano-scale fcc metals
The present work investigates the dominant mechanisms in the plasticity of nano-sized fcc metallic samples. Molecular dynamics simulations of nanopillar compression show that plasticity always starts
Atomic investigations on the tension–compression asymmetry of Al x FeNiCrCu (x = 0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0) high-entropy alloy nanowires
The tension and compression of high-entropy alloy (HEA) nanowires (NWs) are remarkably asymmetric, but the micro mechanism is still unclear. In this research, the tension–compression asymmetry of Al
Investigation on grain size effect and forming mechanism of laser shock hydraulic microforming of copper foil
Laser shock hydraulic microforming (LSHM) is a new microforming that combines the advantages of laser shock microforming and impact hydroforming. LSHM uses monopulse laser to drive the rubber layer


Size dependent deformation behaviour and dislocation mechanisms in 〈1 0 0〉 Cu nanowires
Abstract Molecular dynamics simulations have been performed to understand the size-dependent tensile deformation behaviour of 〈1 0 0〉 Cu nanowires at 10 K. The influence of nanowire size has been
Molecular-dynamics simulations of stacking-fault-induced dislocation annihilation in prestrained ultrathin single-crystalline copper films
We report results of large-scale molecular-dynamics simulations of dynamic deformation under biaxial tensile strain of prestrained single-crystalline nanometer-scale-thick face-centered cubic (fcc)
Plasticity of metal nanowires
The mechanisms of plasticity in metal nanowires with diameters below 100 nm are reviewed. At these length scales, plasticity in face-centered-cubic metals subjected to uniaxial loading is dominated
Unravelling the physics of size-dependent dislocation-mediated plasticity
A generalized size-dependent dislocation-based model that predicts strength as a function of crystal/grain size and the dislocation density is developed and is shown to be in remarkable agreement with experiments.
In situ observation of dislocation nucleation and escape in a submicrometre aluminium single crystal.
The first in situ transmission electron microscopy tensile tests of a submicrometre aluminium single crystal that are capable of providing direct insight into source-controlled dislocation plasticity in a sub micrometr crystal are reported.
Probing the limits of metal plasticity with molecular dynamics simulations
The goal is to quantify the conditions under which the limits of dislocation-mediated plasticity are reached and to understand what happens to the metal beyond any such limit, and to address the complexity of crystal plasticity processes on the length scales and timescales that are examined.
