Badro, James; Barrat, Jean-Louis; Gillet, Philippe;

The behavior of $\alpha$-quartz under hydrostatic and non-hydrostatic high-pressure conditions has been investigated in Molecular Dynamics simulations of silica in order to clarify the role of non-hydrostatic stresses in the amorphization process. It is shown that the a... View more
