Large scale MD was used to study the role of grain boundary structure on the deformation response of randomly generated grain boundaries in FCC materials. We report how variations in the local grain boundary structure can affect the generation of dislocations from grain boundaries and the interaction of grain boundaries with dislocations. The atomistic techniques provide critical information on how the local structure in a random boundary changes with applied stress and how it affects the overall deformation response of grain boundary networks.
