background
Background
  • Some phenomena (dislocation nucleation, cross-slip, crack formation and growth) involving plastic deformation and fracture of ductile materials are intrinsically atomistic.
  • Atomistic studies are usually unable to address large-scale deformation except with supercomputers.
  • So multi-scale methods are introduced in which certain key regions are modeled atomistically while most of the domain is treated with an approximate continuum model(such as FEM) and able to reduce computational cost.
what is cadd
What is CADD
  • Coupled atomistic and discrete dislocation method(CADD)
  • CADD is one of the multi-scale methods.
  • CADD minimizes the number of atoms and replaces atomic degrees of freedom by continuum DOFS describing the continuum elastic displacements and the dislocation lines with little or no loss of accuracy.
model of cadd
Model of CADD
  • Ⅰ: contain all the singularities and discontinuities

(Discrete dislocation)

  • Ⅱ: smooth, continuous and ideally suited to FE

(Linear elastic body bvp)

  • Ⅲ: atomistic region
model of cadd1
Model of CADD
  • Pad:
  • Passing of dislocations
  • Ensure that real atoms at and near the interface are properly coordinated
  • Mitigate the effect of the free surface that would be created on the atomistic region during the cutting process

1D Model
  • The total potential energy of CADD:
  • Where is the energy functional for chain of atoms,

is the total continuum energy.

  • Where k1 is the stiffness for first-neighbour interaction, k2 is the stiffness for second –neighbour interactions.
1d model1
1D Model
  • The total potential energy of CADD:
  • Where is the energy functional for chain of atoms,

is the total continuum energy.

  • Where kc is the effective stiffness for the element.
  • For a proper value for kc in a state of uniform deformation,
1d model example
1D Model Example
  • A chain of 101 atoms,
  • The displacement of atom 0 is fixed,
  • A force f =1 applied to atom 100,
  • K1=1,K2=1,Kc=6,
  • Interface I = 50,
  • Considering inhomogeneous deformation, apply additional force of magnitude f = 0.1 to atoms/nodes I-2, I-1, I.
  • The distance a between atoms is constant, the value is 1.

implementation
Implementation

We get the code package from http://qcmethod.org/

(This website serves as a clearinghouse for multi-scale method-related information.)

Unzipped the package

Download the terminal

(Cygwin under windows)

how to run the code
How to run the code

Commands:

% cd ~/QC/GB-example

% Make QCCOMPILER=gnu

(gFortran compiler)

Finally, we need some tools to visualize the outputs. Here we used Tecplotto get the plots and even videos.

After compile, we'll get executable—gb.

Use commands

% cd ~/QC/GB-example/Shear

%../gb<gb_shear.in>gb_shear.out

Run gb, we’ll get outputs.

example
Example
  • This example builds an Al bi-crystal consisting of two face-centered cubic (fcc) crystals separated by a (111) twin plane.
  • The twin plan has a step,

the height of which is

equal to three (111)

interplanarspacings.

  • The bi-crystal is subjected

to an increasing uniform

shear which causes the

twin boundary to migrate

in the direction perpendicular

to the twin plane.

Code: FEM part
  • The example presented here uses three-node linear elements with one Gauss point at the centroid of each element. The iso-parametric formulation is used.
  • A utility routine that can be used

by the user_mesh routine to generate

regular or symmetric meshes.

  • Eg. Set SymmetricMesh=.true, We get

the finite mesh for the continuum

region as:

  • The element, local node numbering and shape functions
