Abstract

The lecture describes the objectives of the learning module and provides the necessary background for the activities. We briefly discuss the following topics:

  • mechanical response of macroscopic polycrystalline metals during tensile tests
  • molecular dynamics simulations of materials
  • mechanical response of nanoscale, defect-free samples

This lecture is part of the learning module Atomic Picture of Plastic Deformation in Metals.
