Abstract

It is attempted to model a displacive phase transformation by Continuous Displacement Cluster Variation Method. The main focus of the present study is placed on distorted to non-distorted phase transformation in the two-dimensional square lattice. The entropy is formulated within the single-site approximation (point approximation), while the pair-wise atomic interaction energies are combined to stabilize a distorted phase at low temperatures. The distorted to non-distorted phase transformation in the present study is of the second order, and the calculated distribution of atoms suggests that the transformation is of the displacive type in the classification.
