Award Title: 

Interactions of Multiple Phase Transformations and Dislocations:
Modeling and Simulation from Atomistic to Microscal

Award Amount:


Award Period Date: 

September 1, 2015-August 31, 2018

Current Status: 



The goal of this project is to develop a multiscale framework for modeling the coupled dynamics of PTs and dislocations in single and polycrystalline materials from atomic to macroscopic level, to apply this approach to solve fundamental problems related to the interaction of PTs and plasticity at different scales, to reveal the main mechanisms and phenomena, and find methods of controlling them
