Symmetric and three asymmetric Sigma 5 (001) tilt grain boundaries in niobium were studied by computer-aided modeling methods. The structure and energy of considered boundaries and the formation energy of point defects in them were calculated by molecular static modeling. The dependences of the formation energy of point defects on the distance from the plane of grain boundary were analyzed. The grain-boundary self- diffusion coefficients were calculated for the considered boundaries by the molecular dynamics method.
