The objective of this paper is to examine the instability characteristics of both a bulk FCC crystal and a (100) surface of an FCC crystal under uniaxial stretching along a h100i direction using an atomisticbased nonlocal instability criterion. By comparison to benchmark atomistic simulations, we demonstrate that for both the FCC bulk and (100) surface, about 5000–10,000 atoms are required in order to obtain an accurate converged value for the instability strain and a converged instability mode… CONTINUE READING
