Phase-field modeling of crack propagation in polycrystalline materials

A phase-field model based on a modified form of the regularized formulation of Griffith’s fracture theory is presented to investigate intergranular and transgranular crack propagations in polycrystalline brittle materials. Grains and grain boundaries are incorporated in the crack initiation and propagation model based on a phase-field model for grain growth, in which the elastic anisotropy varies based on the grain orientation angle, and the grain boundary energy is related to the misorientation angle of the adjacent grains.

A new planner BCN lateral heterostructure with outstanding strength and defect-mediated superior semiconducting to conducting properties

Motivated by the recent synthesis of boron-carbon-nitride (BCN) monolayers with different atomic compositions, we propose a novel planar BCN lateral heterostructure with a combination of graphene and hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) counterparts. Density functional theory (DFT) and classical molecular dynamics (CMD) simulations are integrated to examine the effects of defects (vacancy and Stone-Wales (SW) defects) and temperature on the physical properties of the BCN heterostructure.

Effect of surface topography on anisotropic friction of graphene layers

Tribological behavior of graphene layers has been a focus of intensive research interest since its crystal lattice structure can be exploited to achieve incommensurate contact, leading to nearly zero friction, namely structural superlubricity. However, wrinkling undulations are omnipresent on graphene and difficult to be completely eliminated, which inevitably resists superlubricity in reality. Here, we explore how the presence of surface wrinkles affects nanotribological behavior of graphene sliding systems.
