Synthetic driving forces are an established method for simulating grain growth and calculating mobilities in molecular dynamic simulations. However, current approaches have only been implemented for FCC and BCC materials. This work expands the implementation of the Energy Conserving Orientational (ECO) force developed by Ulomek et al. and the orient driving force developed by Janssens et al. to the HCP crystal structure. Simulation results for these two methods are compared to shear driven grain boundary motion, revealing good agreement between the methods in both grain boundary velocity and structural behavior.
