Effects of the local chemical environment on vacancy diffusion in multi-principal element alloys

Multi-principal element alloys (MPEAs) are exciting systems showing remarkable properties compared to conventional materials due to their exceedingly large compositional space and spatially varying

A multiscale and multiphysics framework to simulate radiation damage in nano-crystalline materials

This work presents a multiscale and multiphysics framework to investigate the radiation-induced damage in nano-crystalline materials. The framework combines two methodologies, including molecular

The hidden structure dependence of the chemical life of dislocations

A wide range of defect-specific solute (Au) decoration patterns of much greater variety and complexity than expected from the Cottrell cloud picture are observed, opening up pathways to use dislocations for the compositional and structural nanoscale design of advanced materials.

Atomistic Simulation of Hydrogen Diffusion in Palladium Nanoparticles Using a Diffusive Molecular Dynamics Method

Understanding the transport of hydrogen within metals is crucial for the advancement of energy storage and the mitigation of hydrogen embrittlement. Using nanosized palladium particles as a model,

A unified framework for heat and mass transport at the atomic scale

We present a unified framework to simulate heat and mass transport in systems of particles. The proposed framework is based on kinematic mean field theory and uses a phenomenological master equation

A new approach for electronic heat conduction in molecular dynamics simulations

We present a new approach for the two-temperature molecular dynamics (MD) model for coupled simulations of electronic and phonon heat conduction in nanoscale systems. The proposed method uses a

Atomistically informed solute drag in Al–Mg

Solute drag in solute-strengthened alloys, caused by diffusion of solute atoms around moving dislocations, controls the stress at deformation rates and temperatures useful for plastic forming

Scalable parallel Monte Carlo algorithm for atomistic simulations of precipitation in alloys

We present an extension of the semi-grand-canonical (SGC) ensemble that we refer to as the variance-constrained semi-grand-canonical (VC-SGC) ensemble. It allows for transmutation Monte Carlo
