Dynamical interaction between a screw dislocation and a void in pure iron using molecular dynamics

Okubo, Manabu*; Onitsuka, Takashi*; Fukumoto, Kenichi*; Suzudo, Tomoaki 

In structural materials of fast breeder and fusion rectors, vacancies produced by radiation displacements are clustered and form voids. Experimental evidence indicates that the voids become obstacles of dislocation motion and cause hardening of the materials, but the detailed mechanism of the hardening has not been clear. In the current study, we perform molecular dynamics simulation of the interaction between a screw dislocation and a void to clarify the radiation hardening mechanism. Our results clearly show that the screw dislocation is pinned between the center of the void and its rear interface.
