In this computational lab you will perform online molecular dynamics (MD) simulations through nanoHUB of martensitic transformations and analyze the results in order to:

  • Describe the atomistic process of martensitic, solid-solid phase transitions
  • Compare different martensitic alloys, their crystal structures, orientation relationships, and their transformation paths
  • Describe differences between simulation and experiment
