Molecular Dynamics Study on Cold-welding of 3D Nanoporous Structures

Abstract

Nanoporous metals are a class of novel nanomaterials with potential applications in many fields. Here, we demonstrate the cold-welding mechanism of nanoporous metals with various combinations using molecular dynamics simulations. This study shows that it is possible to cold-weld two nanoporous metals to form a novel composite material. The temperature parameter in the range of 300-900 K is investigated. With an increase in temperature, the weld stress and the mechanical strength of the nanoporous structures significantly decrease, with increasing disorder magnitude observed. These results could lead to bottom-up nanofabrication and nanoassembly of combined nanoporous metals for high mechanical performance.
