Nano-scale coherent twin boundaries can be an effective way in overcoming the strength-ductility trade-off of metals and their alloys. In this sense also twin boundaries in nano-lamellar lightweight Ti-Al alloys promise great potential. Furthermore, the existence of three types of these twin boundaries with different misorientation and coherency state at the interface provides an excellent opportunity to study the effect of exactly these parameters in a realistic model system. To this end, we carried out molecular statics simulations to characterize the crack advancement at and across internal true-twins (TTs), rotational boundaries (RBs), and pseudo-twins (PTs) in lamellar γ-TiAl alloys, as well as crack propagation in fully lamellar structures.
