The multiscale modeling of plastic deformation in metallic nanolayered composites Academic Article uri icon


  • Metallic nanolayered composites exhibit very high flow strength and stable plastic flow to large strains. The explanation of the unusual mechanical behavior of these materials in terms of the atomic structures of the interfaces and layer thickness ranging from nano-meters to micrometers requires atomistic simulations, dislocation theory, and crystal plasticity modeling across length scales.
