Title Nucleation of second-phase near elastic defects in crystalline solids

English abstract
The problem of heterogeneous nucleation of second-phase in alloys in the vicinity of elastic defects is considered. The defect can be a dislocation line or a crack tip residing in a crystalline solid. We use a compressible Ising-like model, represented by the Ginzburg-Landau equation, to describe the spatiotemporal evolution of the order parameter in the environs of the defect. The model accounts for the elasticity of the solid and the interaction of order parameter field with the elastic field of the defect. A finite volume numerical method is used to solve the governing partial differential equation for the order parameter. We examine the nature of the phase transition and discuss the phase diagram topology near and away from the defect. We discuss our calculations in light of observations of formation of hydrides in zirconium and titanium alloys.
