Recrystallization from a Three-Grain Crystalline Iron
The solid state recrystallization and grain boundary migrations in an iron nanoparticle Fe2616 with three grains were studied by a molecular dynamics simulation. It was found that nucleation rates could be determined as the smaller grains were consumed by the larger ones. Moreover, the grain disorder was more important than the misorientation angle in governing the rates. Suggestions about the critical nuclei for the recrystallization are proposed. No obvious interaction between the grain boundaries was observed in the example studied in this report.
