Atomistic simulations of cracks with four different orientations in body-centered cubic single crystal iron are presented using molecular dynamics. Crystal orientation has considerable effect on the activation and evolution ofcrack propagation mechanisms. The results reveal that (a) crack-tip blunting depends on the crystallographic orientation, (b) continuous generation of dislocations form crack tip occurs for large crack-tip blunting, and (c) absence of deformation activities like dislocation generation, twin formation, etc. at the crack tip results in crack propagation in a brittle manner.
