A new interatomic potential for Fe-Pb binary system is developed in the framework of an embedded atom model using the force-matching method. Compared with the ab initio calculations and experiment values, the developed Fe-Pb EAM potential can accurately describe the ground state, defects and liquid properties of crystal and Fe-Pb solid-liquid interface, such as equation of state, vacancy and interstitial formation energies, adsorption and escape energies, melting point, radial distribution function and density at high temperature. High accuracy and feasibility of the developed Fe-Pb EAM potential can provide the further reliable studies on the corrosion behavior of liquid Pb on steels used in complicate environment of the irradiation, high temperature, pressure in nuclear reactors.
