    Abstract Molecular dynamics (MD) simulations are performed to study crystalline plasticity during nano-indentation by comparing the elastic-plastic response of three copper substrates with surfaces (001), (110), and (111) crystallographic planes. The effects of elastic anisotropy and crystallographic symmetry on the reduced modulus, dislocation nucleation, and subsequent microstructure evolution, are investigated. The reduced modulus of (111) surface is found to be the largest, while that of (001) surface is the smallest. Elastic stress distribution calculated from finite element method (FEM) is qualitatively consistent with the MD simulation results. Significant differences exist in the deformation behavior in the three different crystallographic orientations. The… More >
