Formation et extension de macles de déformation dans des nanostructures cfc : simulations numériques

Abstract : For several decades, the elaboration of nano-structured materials tends to develop more and more. Indeed, these materials often show interesting properties, and in particular surprising mechanical properties when compared to their bulk counterparts. For example, nano-twinned or nano-layered metals are known to have ultra-high mechanical strength, good thermal stability, and very good radiation resistance. As the interface spacing decreases to the nanometer-scale, the density of interfaces increases significantly and subsequently the macroscopic properties become largely governed by the interface-defect interactions. In that context, we have studied deformation twin formation and mechanisms of interaction between a new formed twin and a preexisting interface (a twin boundary or a bimetallic interface), using atomistic simulations and a thin film model configuration. First results show the influence of surface steps on mechanical twinning, for a model system without interface. Then we identify a new mechanism leading to the formation of a Lomer dislocation, following the interaction of a newly formed twin and a preexisting twin boundary. By varying the density of surface defects, we show the particular influence of a preexisting twin boundary on twin size and number. Finally, for the Cu/Ag bimetallic system, our results highlight the role of epitaxial dislocations (at the interface) in twin nucleation and extension as well as a direct influence of the interface type in twin propagation.
