Abstract

The simulations on single vacancy defect transients for FCC structure were conducted to study the change in its final structure, especially the average atomic volume. The numerical code "ALINE" was employed for this purpose. The results obtained showed that when a single vacancy defect occurred in a perfect FCC-crystal structure, the average atomic volume was found to be suddenly increased and then gradually decreased down the value close to the initial value. This suggested that the FCC structure was able to expand and fill the volume originally occupied by the missing atom.
