Atomistic response of a model silica glass under shear and pressure

Abstract : The Mechanical Response of a Model Silica Glass is studied extensively at the submicrometer scale, with the help of atomistic simulations. The analysis of the response to a hydrostatic com- pression is compared to recent experimental results. The irreversible behaviour and the variation of intertetrahedral angles is recovered. It is shown that the atomistic response is homogeneous upon compression, in opposition with the localization along shear bands occuring during shear deformation with constant volume. Moreover, the Bulk Modulus anomaly is interpreted as due to a succession of such homogeneous but irreversible atomic rearrangements.
