Interatomic potential for the Al-Cu system

  title={Interatomic potential for the Al-Cu system},
  author={Florin Apostol and Yuri Mishin},
  journal={Physical Review B},
An angular-dependent interatomic potential has been developed for the Al-Cu system based on existing embedded-atom method potentials for Al and Cu and fitting of the cross-interaction functions to experimental and first-principles data. The potential reproduces lattice parameters, formation energies, and elastic constants of the θ and θ ′ phases of this system. It predicts the θ ′ phase to be more stable than θ at 0 K but to become less stable at hight temperatures due to vibrational entropy…

Charge optimized many-body potential for aluminum

The polycrsytal when strained shows responses that are physical and the overall behavior is consistent with experimental observations, and the unstable stacking fault energetics along the [Formula: see text] direction on the (1’1 1‬1) plane are similar to those obtained from first-principles calculations.

A bond-order potential for the Al–Cu–H ternary system

Al-Based Al–Cu alloys have a very high strength to density ratio, and are therefore important materials for transportation systems including vehicles and aircrafts. These alloys also appear to have a

Modified embedded atom method potential for Al, Si, Mg, Cu, and Fe alloys

A set of modified embedded-atom method (MEAM) potentials for the interactions between Al, Si, Mg, Cu, and Fe was developed from a combination of each element's MEAM potential in order to study metal

Precipitation strengthening in Cu-Ni-Si alloys modeled with ab initio based interatomic potentials.

It is found that β-Ni3Si precipitates have a similar effect on precipitation strengthening as δ-Ni2Si but increased coherency strain can lead to circumvention processes.

Molecular dynamics simulation of diffusion bonding of Al–Cu interface

The effects of temperature on diffusion bonding of Al–Cu interface have been investigated by using molecular dynamics (MD) technique with the embedded atomic method (EAM) potentials. The simulated
