Atomistic explanation of shear-induced amorphous band formation in boron carbide
(American Physical Society, 2014)
Boron carbide (B4C) is very hard, but its applications are hindered by stress-induced amorphous band formation. To explain this behavior, we used density function theory (Perdew-Burke-Ernzerhof flavor) to examine the ...
