The effects of stress, temperature and facet structure on growth of {1012} twins in Mg: A molecular dynamics and phase field study

Abstract

The present study focuses on the roles of structure, stress and temperature on the mobility of facets bounding twin domains and on the overall impact on the growth kinetics of {1012} twins in Mg. We first use molecular dynamics simulations (MD) to study the relationship between interface structures, stress, temperature and mobility. As facets can exhibit distinct atomic scale structures, we also quantify the effect of stress relaxation mediated by misfit dislocations on the mobility of the basal-prismatic interface. The information gathered for ten different facets is used to calibrate an anisotropic phase field model predicting the effects of temperature and stress on the kinetics and shape of a growing {1012} 3D twin, by comparison with MD data. The comparative analysis suggests that, as compared to simulations of individual facets, the effective mobility of facets can be significantly different during growth of a 3D twin. This can be attributed to the complex three-dimensional internal stress state of the twin and to coupling in facet motion triggered by facet junctions. As such, by directly fitting both the twin growth kinetics and morphology as predicted by MD for different stresses and temperatures, we can identify a limited set of rate-limiting facets that control twin growth and morphology, and measure their effective mobility.
