Abstract

A molecular-dynamic study of nucleation of structural defects in materials with an initially perfect crystal lattice by thermal fluctuations under high strain rates is performed. It is shown that thermal fluctuations can generate structural defects. There exists some threshold value of strain at which abrupt growth of regions with local structural changes is observed.
