The DFG Project SCHM746/154-1 has the objective to investigate strengthening mechanisms in aluminum magnesium alloys using molecular dynamic simulations. Simulating tensile tests in the very short accessible time is leading to high strain rates. These high strain rates together with the limited size of the simulated model is repeatedly leading to retention towards findings by molecular dynamic simulations. To overcome these stigmata, a short insight into two investigations are presented in this project overview, where a good connection between experimentally obtained and simulated results is made.
