This page shows visualizations of the FeNiCr alloys

In this simulation, the equiatomic FeNiCr alloy model is built using LAMMPS. Embedded atom model (EAM) is used to build the potential of the system. The alloy is quenched with different cooling rates, i.e., 2.2×1012, 1.375×1013, and 2.75×1013 K/s.1
