1 Length-scale Dependent Dislocation Nucleation during Nanoindentation on Nanosized Gold Islands Alex Gonzalez Department of Mechanical Engineering University of Arkansas Fayetteville, AR USA REU 2 nd Week Seminar – Friday May 29 th, 2009

2 Multiscale Mechanics of Materials Laboratory, Department of Mechanical Engineering Literature Background Molecular Dynamics  Requires 3 things:  Interatomic potential energy function, which defines the interactions between atoms  Forces between atoms, which are derived from the binding energies  A numerical method to compute the velocities and positions of atoms in the simulation

3 Multiscale Mechanics of Materials Laboratory, Department of Mechanical Engineering Literature Background

4 Multiscale Mechanics of Materials Laboratory, Department of Mechanical Engineering Methodology and Goals The objective of this project is to make indentations on nanosized islands of Au to generate dislocations and study the onset of plasticity. Computer Simulation  Linux  Large-scale Atomic/Molecular Massively Parallel Simulator (LAMMPS)  Ensight  Super Computer “Trillion” Week 1-3: Visualization Week 4-5: Initial Testing Week 6-8: Analysis & additional Simulations Week 9-10: Report and Presentation Norbert Attig, Kurt Binder, Helmut Grubm¨ uller, Kurt Kremer (Eds.), John von Neumann Institute for Computing, J ¨ ulich, NIC Series, Vol. 23, ISBN , pp. 1-28, 2004.

5 Multiscale Mechanics of Materials Laboratory, Department of Mechanical Engineering Overview 3D Rendering Input corresponding MD material specifications. Input correct settings for server and files. Simulation Run simulation of LAMMPS through “Trillion.” Export data from LAMMPS Simulation. LAMMPS Import data from LAMMPS. Set visualization preferences i.e. dots, spheres, energy, Centro-symmetry. Interpret 3D model results. Step1 Step2 Step3
