Summary of "Crack and its interaction with defects in Al coated with CuZr metallic glass thin film: an MD simulation study."

Molecular dynamics (MD) simulation studies are carried out to investigate the crack propagation behavior and crack-void interactions in Al coated with CuZr metallic glass (MG) thin film model. The model thin film is subjected to mode I and mode II loading conditions at a temperature of 300 K and a strain rate of 10 s. The simulations are carried out in the framework of EAM (embedded atom method) potential based on the CZM (cohesive zone model). The model size is 435 Å (x-axis) × 174 Å (y-axis) × 17 Å (z-axis). Nine models are investigated containing an edge crack (length, L = 43 Å, and 118 Å) located at the interface and voids (diameter, ϕ = 10-36 Å) located in the Al region and at the interface. The results show that crack propagation occurs by dislocation emission and blunts the crack tip. The presence of void ahead of the crack tip restricts the crack propagation due to the stress field resulting in bowing out of the crack and is effective with an increase in the void size which grows normal and parallel to the loading direction. The estimated crack speeds in mode I and mode II are 366 m/s and 370 m/s during stable crack growth. Separation of the interface occurs by fracture of the ligaments between the voids. Shockley partial dislocations are found nucleating from the void surfaces; twinned regions are found between the voids. The work of separation is found to be 11.56 J/m for mode I and 3.7 J/m in mode II, indicating that failure occurs in mode II. Graphical abstract.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The purified, alkaloidal, extra-potent form of cocaine. It is smoked (free-based), injected intravenously, and orally ingested. Use of crack results in alterations in function of the cardiovascular system, the autonomic nervous system, the central nervous system, and the gastrointestinal system. The slang term "crack" was derived from the crackling sound made upon igniting of this form of cocaine for smoking.

Specialized regions of the cell membrane composed of pits coated with a bristle covering made of the protein CLATHRIN. These pits are the entry route for macromolecules bound by cell surface receptors. The pits are then internalized into the cytoplasm to form the COATED VESICLES.

TRANSPORT VESICLES formed when cell-membrane coated pits (COATED PITS, CELL-MEMBRANE) invaginate and pinch off. The outer surface of these vesicles is covered with a lattice-like network of COP (coat protein complex) proteins, either COPI or COPII. COPI coated vesicles transport backwards from the cisternae of the GOLGI APPARATUS to the rough endoplasmic reticulum (ENDOPLASMIC RETICULUM, ROUGH), while COPII coated vesicles transport forward from the rough endoplasmic reticulum to the Golgi apparatus.

Vesicles formed when cell-membrane coated pits (COATED PITS, CELL-MEMBRANE) invaginate and pinch off. The outer surface of these vesicles is covered with a lattice-like network of the protein CLATHRIN. Shortly after formation, however, the clathrin coat is removed and the vesicles are referred to as ENDOSOMES.

Tablets coated with material that delays release of the medication until after they leave the stomach. (Dorland, 28th ed)
