The Investigation of Nanowires Properties in the Process of Deformation
In this work, the authors attempted to consider the influence of the geometry of the crystal lattice on the properties of nanowires, which manifest themselves in the process of uni-axial stretching. This work summarizes and systematizes the results of previous studies of the authors. The first group of samples – are typical FCC metal – Ni3Al. For these nanowires, deformation processes in directions with different packing densities of atoms <100>, <110> and <111> were investigated. The second material group studied was an alloy with the non-cubic symmetry of the element cell CuAu I. Correspondingly, this sample was examined under deformation in directions corresponding to different lengths of the sides of the unit cell, <001> and <010>. All the investigations described in this paper were carried out by molecular dynamics method on three-dimensional models using the Morse's pair potentials.
