The mechanical and thermodynamical properties of Pd, Ag pure metals and especially PdxAg1-x alloys are studied by using the molecular dynamics simulation. The effects of temperature and concentration on the physical properties of PdxAg1-x are analyzed. Sutton-Chen (SC) and quantum Sutton-Chen (Q-SC) many-body potentials are used as interatomic interactions which enable one to investigate the thermodynamic, static, and dynamical properties of transition metals. The calculated results such as cohesive energy, density, elastic constants, bulk modulus, pair distribution functions, melting points and phonon dispersion curves of Pd, Ag and PdxAg1-x are in good agreement with the available experimental data at the various temperatures. The predicted melting points of Pd, Ag and their binary alloys from Q-SC potential parameters are closer to experimental values than the ones predicted from SC potential parameters.

Kart, SO; Uludogan, M; Cagin, T; Tomak, Mehmet (2003-09-12)
The performance of the quantum Sutton-Chen many body potential on the solid and liquid properties of Pd-Ni fcc transition metal alloys is investigated by molecular dynamics simulations. Elastic constants, phonon dispersion relations and diffusion coefficients are studied. The melting temperatures of Pd-Ni alloys are predicted. The transferability of the potential is also tested by simulating the liquid state. Comparison of the molecular dynamics results with available experimental data shows that the quantu...
Simulation of crystallization and glass formation processes for binary Pd-Ag metal alloys
Kart, HH; Uludogan, M; Cagin, T; Tomak, Mehmet (2003-09-12)
Glass formation and crystallization process of Pd-Ag metallic alloys are investigated by means of molecular dynamics simulation. This simulation uses the quantum Sutton-Chen (Q-SC) potential to study structural and transport properties of Pd-Ag alloys. Cooling rates and concentration effects on the glass formation and crystallization of binary alloys considered in this work are investigated. Pd-Ag alloys show the glass structure at fast cooling rates while it crystallizes at slow cooling rates. Increment of...

Electronic properties of open-ended single wall carbon nanotubes
Turker, L; Erkoç, Şakir (2002-01-31)
We have investigated the electrostatic, charge and orbital properties of open-ended single-wall carbon nanotubes in zigzag geometry. The calculations were performed by using the AM1-RHF semiempirical molecular orbital method. It has been found that the tubes with smaller radius behave like a metallic solid whereas the tubes with larger radius behave like a metallic hollow cylinder.
