Abstract

Within the framework of the method of molecular dynamics and statistic geometrical analysis, laws governing the formation of the structure of a percolation cluster consisting of interpenetrating and mutually contacting icosahedra have been studied in the process of iron vitrification. The results of an analysis of the morphology of clusters consisting of only interpenetrating icosahedra and of the nature of their joining into a percolation cluster are presented.
