Four MeV iron atom bombardment of fcc iron was studied using the computer experiment approach. Entire 4 MeV collision cascades were simulated by computing, in sequence, each atom-atom collision in a cascade on an individual basis. Firsov’s model was used to compute the inelastic energy loss for each collision, and the Erginsoy-Vineyard potential was used as the basis for computing the atom kinetic energy changes during collision.
