Molecular dynamics simulations of deposition in Ni-Al system

Main Article Content

В. М. Безпальчук


The paper presents a numeric model of the deposition by means of molecular dynamics simulations, using embedded-atom method (EAM) type potential. Simulation for Ni deposition on Al substrate was investigated in this work. The state dependence of the contact zones of Ni and Al on the deposition conditions (temperature, flux density) are found.
