Modeling of the atomic ordering processes in Fe3Al intermetallics by the Monte Carlo simulation method combined with electronic theory of alloys

2003-12-01
The evolution of atomic ordering processes in Fe3Al has been modeled by the Monte Carlo (MC) simulation method combined with the electronic theory of alloys in pseudopotential approximation. The magnitude of atomic ordering energies of atomic pairs in the Fe3Al system has been calculated by means of electronic theory in pseudopotential approximation up to sixth coordination spheres and subsequently used as input data for MC simulation for more detailed analysis for the first time. The Bragg–Williams long-range order (LRO) and Cowley–Warren short-range order (SRO) parameters have been calculated from the equilibrium configurations attained at the end of MC simulation for each predefined temperature and Al concentration levels, which reveal the evolution of the system from DO3 → B2 → disordered state as temperature increases. The variation of ordering parameters with temperature has identified the transition temperature from DO3 → B2 type superlattice, and from B2 → disordered (a) solid solution at about 540 °C and .900 °C, respectively, showing good qualitative agreement with experimental results. The results of the present study imply that combination of electronic theory of alloys in pseudopotential approximation with MC simulation can be successfully applied for qualitative or semiquantitative analysis of energetical and structural characteristics of atomic ordering processes in Fe3Al intermetallics.

Analysis of material instabilities in inelastic solids by incremental energy minimization and relaxation methods: evolving deformation microstructures in finite plasticity
MIEHE, CHRISTIAN; LAMBRECHT, MATTHIAS; Gürses, Ercan (Elsevier BV, 2004-12-01)
We propose an approach to the definition and analysis of material instabilities in rate-independent standard dissipative solids at finite strains based on finite-step-sized incremental energy minimization principles. The point of departure is a recently developed constitutive minimization principle for standard dissipative materials that optimizes a generalized incremental work function with respect to the internal variables. In an incremental setting at finite time steps this variational problem defines a ...

The bulk glass forming ability (BGFA) of Ti-Cu based multicomponent alloys has been evaluated via theoretical modeling and computer simulation studies based on a combination of electronic theory of alloys in the pseudopotential approximation and the statistical thermodynamical theory of liquid alloys The. magnitude of atomic ordering energies, calculated by means of the electronic theory of alloys in the pseudopotential approximation, was subsequently used for calculation of the key thermodynamic parameters...
Calculation of the Raman Linewidths of Lattice Modes Close to the alpha-beta Transition in Quartz
Lider, Mustafa Cem; Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (Walter de Gruyter GmbH, 2012-12-01)
The Raman frequencies of the lattice modes (147 cm(-1) and 207 cm(-1)) are analyzed for the alpha-beta transition in quartz according to a power-law formula with the critical exponent by using the experimental data. The temperature dependence of the Raman frequency is associated with the order parameter (polarization P) for this transition in the quartz crystal.
A variational multiscale constitutive model for nanocrystalline materials
Gürses, Ercan (Elsevier BV, 2011-03-01)
This paper presents a variational multi-scale constitutive model in the finite deformation regime capable of capturing the mechanical behavior of nanocrystalline (nc) fcc metals. The nc-material is modeled as a two-phase material consisting of a grain interior phase and a grain boundary effected zone (GBAZ). A rate-independent isotropic porous plasticity model is employed to describe the GBAZ, whereas a crystal-plasticity model which accounts for the transition from partial dislocation to full dislocation m...
