Abstract

Consolidation processes during fabrication of nanophase palladium from atom clusters are simulated using molecular statics (MS), molecular dynamics (MD), and a potential from the emebedded atom,ethod (EAM). The MD simulations are conducte3d under conditions similar experimental conditions, i.e., at room temperature (300 K) and under compressive pressures of 10-50 kbar (1-5 GPa). Several dynamic phenomena have been observed during the simulations, such as "neck" formation, surface rounding, void formation and shrinking, and cluster extrusion. The effect of applied compressive pressures on the final structures of nanophase materials during considation is demonstrated.
