This paper describes a computer simulation of thermal ageing process in Fe-Cu alloy. In order to perform accurate numerical simulation, firstly, we make numerical models of the diffusion and dissociation of Cu and Cu-vacancy clusters. This modeling was performed with kinetic lattice Monte Carlo method, which allows us to perform long-time simulation of vacancy diffusion in Fe-Cu dilute alloy. The model is input to the kinetic Monte Carlo method, and then, we performed the kinetic Monte Carlo simulation of the thermal ageing in the Fe-Cu alloy. The results of the KMC simulations tell us that the our new models describes well the rate and kinetics of the diffusion and dissociation of Cu and Cu-vacancy clusters, and works well in the kinetic Monte Carlo simulations. Finally, we discussed the further application of these numerical models.
