Citations

This panel presents the list of papers that cite the interatomic potential whose page you are on (by its primary sources given below in "How to Cite").

Articles marked by the green star have been determined to have used the potential in computations (as opposed to only citing it as background information) by a machine learning (ML) algorithm developed by the KIM Team that analyzes the full text of the papers. Articles that do not use it are marked with a null symbol, and in cases where no information is available a question mark is shown.

The full text of the articles used to train the ML algorithm is provided by the Allen Institute for AI through the Semantic Scholar project.

The word cloud to the right is built from the abstracts of the primary sources and using papers to give a sense of the types of physical phenomena to which this interatomic potential is applied.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Usage can only be determined for articles for which Semantic Scholar can provide OpenKIM with the full text. Where this is not the case, we ask the community for help in determining usage. If you know whether an article did or did not use a potential, let us know by clicking the cloud icon by the article and completing a one question form.

The word cloud indicates applications of this Potential. The bar chart shows citations per year of this Potential.

Description
A short description of the Model describing its key features including for example: type of model (pair potential, 3-body potential, EAM, etc.), modeled species (Ac, Ag, ..., Zr), intended purpose, origin, and so on.
Finnis-Sinclair potential for Zr developed by Mendelev and Ackland (2007). Surprisingly, currently used interatomic potentials do not encapsulate the unique properties of Zr, namely its high stacking-fault energy, anomolous self-diffusion, melting and phase transformation under temperature and pressure (or alloying). Ab initio calculations have shown deficiencies in the description of point defects, both vacancies and interstitials, using existing interatomic potentials, deficiencies that can now be rectified by refitting. Here, we show the calculation of phase transitions self-consistently and present a potential for Zr that correctly reproduces the energetics of our extended database of ab initio configurations and high-temperature phase transitions. The potential has an analytic many-body form, making it suitable for existing large-scale MD codes. We also present a best-fit potential for the hcp structure and its defects.

In version 3 of the potential, according to the developer Graeme Ackland (as reported in the NIST IPRP), close-range repulsion has been added for radiation studies.

The file header includes a note from the LAMMPS contributor: "The potential was taken from v3_10_hcp (in C:\SIMULATION.MD\Zr\Results\v3_10)"

This potential is similar to https://doi.org/10.25950/97d25ed6 (taken from the LAMMPS distribution dated 2007-06-11), but gives different results for very small interatomic distances (The other potential is in fact the deprecated potential).

Disclaimer

This potential is suitable for the simulation of plastic deformation in the hcp Zr at low temperatures. Note that melting temperature is significantly different from the experimental value. There is another Zr potential (#2) in the same paper which is suitable for the simulation of the bcc Zr and solidification. It is a part of Cu-Zr potentials by Mendelev (see https://openkim.org/id/MO_609260676108_000).

BCC Lattice Constant

This bar chart plot shows the mono-atomic body-centered cubic (bcc) lattice constant predicted by the current model (shown in the unique color) compared with the predictions for all other models in the OpenKIM Repository that support the species. The vertical bars show the average and standard deviation (one sigma) bounds for all model predictions. Graphs are generated for each species supported by the model.

Cohesive Energy Graph

This graph shows the cohesive energy versus volume-per-atom for the current mode for four mono-atomic cubic phases (body-centered cubic (bcc), face-centered cubic (fcc), simple cubic (sc), and diamond). The curve with the lowest minimum is the ground state of the crystal if stable. (The crystal structure is enforced in these calculations, so the phase may not be stable.)

Cohesive energy versus lattice constant curve for monoatomic cubic lattices v003

Creators:
Contributor: karls
Publication Year: 2019
DOI: https://doi.org/10.25950/64cb38c5

This Test Driver uses LAMMPS to compute the cohesive energy of a given monoatomic cubic lattice (fcc, bcc, sc, or diamond) at a variety of lattice spacings. The lattice spacings range from a_min (=a_min_frac*a_0) to a_max (=a_max_frac*a_0) where a_0, a_min_frac, and a_max_frac are read from stdin (a_0 is typically approximately equal to the equilibrium lattice constant). The precise scaling and number of lattice spacings sampled between a_min and a_0 (a_0 and a_max) is specified by two additional parameters passed from stdin: N_lower and samplespacing_lower (N_upper and samplespacing_upper). Please see README.txt for further details.
