Atomistic Studies of Deformation Mechanism of Nanocrystalline Al-Ti and Al-Fe Alloys from First-Principles
We investigated the contribution to the high yield strength due to the solid solution strengthening in nanocrystalline Al-Ti alloys produced by a vapor quench method. The misfit strain due to solute Ti atom in aluminum was obtained from the first principles calculation. Then, the theoretical result of the contribution to the yield strength due to the solid solution strengthening was estimated from the misfit strain using the Friedel’s theory. In dilute Al-Ti alloy, the theoretical results of the solid solution strengthening from the misfit strain was in good agreement with the analytical result using the measured grain size and yield stress.
