    06 Dec 2018 | Online Presentations

    In this work, we present a new design criterion capable of significantly abating strength degradation in lightweight materials, by successfully combining size-induced strengthening effect in nanomaterials with architectural design of cellular porous materials. Hollow-tube-based 3D ceramic...

  5. Phase Transforming Cellular Materials (Spherical Shells)

    27 Aug 2018 | Presentation Materials

    “Phase transforming cellular materials (PXCMs) are a class of materials whose unit cells exhibit multiple configurations (metastable or bistable) [1]. The geometrical structure of the PXCM can change to increase the energy absorbed. The hysteretic nature of the PXCM makes the potential...

  6. Ionization Potential of Small Molecules Using DFT

    27 Aug 2018 | Teaching Materials

    Use DFT simulations to explore the ionization potential (energy required to remove an electron) in atoms and small molecules. Disclaimer: While very powerful, DFT makes well known approximations and the results obtained in this module are approximate.
