Confinement effects on the correlation of plasticity in amorphous solids — •Muhammad Hassani, Philipp Engels, and Fathollah Varnik — Interdisciplinary Centre for Advanced Materials Simulation (ICAMS), Ruhr Universität, Bochum, Germany
In amorphous solids, spatio-temporal correlations of plastic deformation are known to be mediated by the elastic medium . Solid walls may strongly alter this elastic propagator and are thus expected to also influence these correlations. We study this issue via large scale molecular dynamics (MD) simulations. Spatial correlations of plastic activity are found to decay more slowly when approaching a wall. This observation is paralleled by a similar trend in the case of the strain field around a spherical inclusion placed at various distances from a wall. Results obtained from MD simulations are in quantitative agreement with numerical solution of continuum mechanics equations in the presence of an inclusion [2,3].
