Today, computer simulations are a frequently used method to model e.g. atomic processes in materials. The aim of this talk will be to point out the potential as well as the limitations of this approach by considering computer simulations of the deformation processes in nanocrystalline metals. The results of simulations of deformation processes will be critically compared with recent experimental results, pointing out under which circumstances computer simulations are likely to yield new insight.
