Abstract
The strengthening effect of nanosized Cu precipitates in bcc Fe has been studied by performing molecular dynamics simulations of the interaction between a screw dislocation and a coherent bcc Cu precipitate of 1–4nm diameter in bcc Fe. The dislocation detachment mechanism changes from shear at a precipitate diameter of 4 and 2.5 nm in the twinning and anti-twinning directions, respectively, due to the coherency loss caused by the screw dislocation assisted martensitic transformation of the precipitate. The screw dislocation detachment mechanism with the larger, transformed precipitates involves annihilation-and-renucleation, or Orowan looping in the twinning vs. anti-twinning direction, respectively. The critical resolved shear stress (CRSS) of the screw dislocation-precipitate interaction increases with increasing precipitate size, and is strongly dependent on the precipitate structure and detachment mechanism. The CRSS is much larger in the anti-twinning direction.
