Dynamical Simulations of Tetragonal-Orthorhombic Ferroelastics

A nucleus of the orthorhombic phase in a hard T-O system is characterised by its X-shape. This image evolves according to A1=A3=1000, A2=-50 and A1'=0 (see below)

Some simulations of "soft" systems using A1=A3=10 and A1'=1

A "hard" system, A1=A3=500
