Abstract: Several sets of long-range F-S potential parameters for α-Fe and γ-Fe were deduced according to the method introduced by Sutton et al., and the optima were determined as follows: ε=0.2453, a=0.28664 nm, n=7, m=4, c=7.7525 for α-Fe and ε=0.0006, a=0.36467 nm, n=15, m=4, c=1104.7351 for γ-Fe. Accordingly, the isothermal- isobaric MD simulations were carried out with the set of optimal parameters for α-Fe and γ-Fe at different temperatures in barometric condition. The most-scale agreements between simulations and experiments both for microstructures and macroscopic properties strongly validate the application of this set of parameters to the MD simulation of α-Fe and γ-Fe, and further to the study of interfacial dynamics between metal and oxide.
