A comprehensive picture of void dynamics in connection with the critical morphological evolution has been developed in order to understand the conditions under which premature failure of metallic thin interconnects occurs. Our mathematical model on the mass flow and accumulation on void surfaces, under the action of applied electrostatic and elastostatic force fields, and capillary effects, follows an irreversible but discrete thermodynamic formulation of interphases and surfaces. This formalism also takes into account in a natural way the mass transfer process (the void growth), between bulk phase and the void region in multi-component systems, in terms of the normalized local values of Gibbs free energy of transformation with respect to the specific surface Gibbs free energy, in addition to the contribution due to local curvature of the advancing reaction front, rather rigorously.

A computer simulation of void dynamics under the action of electromigration and capillary forces in narrow thin interconnects
Ogurtani, TO; Oren, EE (2000-10-25)
In these studies a comprehensive picture of void dynamics in connection with the critical morphological evaluation has been thoroughly anticipated in order to understand main reasons as well as the conditions under which premature failure of metallic thin interconnects occur. Our mathematical model on diffusion and mass accumulation on void surfaces, under the action of applied electrostatic potential and capillary effects, follows a novel irreversible but discrete thermodynamic formulation of interphases a...
Computer Simulations on the grain boundary grooving and cathode edge displacement in bamboo-like metallic interconnects
Ogurtani, Tarik Omer; Akyildiz, Oncu (2006-04-21)
The process of grain boundary (GB) grooving and cathode edge displacement invoked by the surface drift-diffusion along the sidewalls in sandwich type thin film bamboo lines are simulated by introducing a new mathematical model. In the absence of the electric field, the computer studies on the triple junction kinetics show that it obeys the first order reaction kinetics at early transient stage, which is followed by the familiar time law as t(1/4), at the steady state regime. The applied electric field (EF) ...
Computer Solutions of Plane Strain Axisymmetric Thermomechanical Problems
Eraslan, Ahmet Nedim (2005-08-01)
A simple computational model is developed to estimate elastic, elastic-plastic, fully plastic, and residual stress states in generalized plane strain axisymmetric structures considering temperature dependent physical properties as well as nonlinear isotropic strain hardening. Using the von Mises yield criterion, total deformation theory and a Swift-type nonlinear hardening law, a single nonlinear differential equation governing thermoelastoplastic behavior is obtained. A shooting technique using Newton iter...
Numerical Simulation of Rarefied Laminar Flow past a Circular Cylinder
Çelenligil, Mehmet Cevdet (2014-07-18)
Numerical simulations have been obtained for two-dimensional laminar flows past a circular cylinder in the transitional regime. Computations are performed using the direct simulation Monte Carlo method for Knudsen numbers of 0.02 and 0.2 and Mach numbers of 0.102 and 0.4. For these conditions, Reynolds number ranges from 0.626 to 24.63 and the flows are steady. Results show that separation occurs in the wake region for the flow with Mach number of 0.4 and Knudsen number of 0.02, but for the other eases flow...
Multi Scale Modeling of Microstructure Evolution Induced Anisotropy in Metals
Yalçınkaya, Tuncay (2013-06-01)
This paper presents two crystal plasticity based computational constitutive models for the intrinsic formation of plastic microstructure during monotonic loading and its altered evolution under strain path changes in metal forming operations. The formation step is modeled via a non-convex strain gradient crystal plasticity framework which could simulate the intrinsic development of the plastic microstructures. The evolution under strain path changes is modeled via phenomenologically based constitutive equat...
