Structural transformations in single-crystal iron during shock-wave compression and tension: Molecular dynamics simulation

V. V. Stegailov and A. V. Yanilkin, J of Expt and Theoretical Physics, 104, 928-935 (2007).

The molecular dynamics method is used to simulate shock-wave propagation in the 100 direction of a single-crystal bcc iron target in order to study structural transformations in compression and rarefaction waves and the mechanisms of spall fracture. The specific features of structural transformations near the lateral target surface have been analyzed.
