Development of the ReaxFF reactive force fields and applications to combustion, catalysis and material failure
12 Sep 2011 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Adri van Duin
This lecture will describe how the traditional, non-reactive FF-concept can be extended for application including reactive events by introducing bond order/bond distance concepts. Furthermore, it...
Mesoscopic Simulations of Nitromethane
22 Sep 2011 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Jean-Bernard Maillet
We present recent developments on the dissipative particle model that allow simulating the physico-chemical behavior of a molecular material at the mesoscale level. Several ingredients have been...
OPV: First Principles Studies of the Electronic Structure of Organic Solids and Interfaces
31 Jan 2011 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Sahar Sharifzadeh
This presentation was part of the "Organic Photovoltaics: Experiment and Theory" workshop at the 2010 Users' Meeting of the Molecular Foundry and the National Center for Electron Microscopy, both...
Ripples and Warping of Graphene: A Theoretical Study
08 Jun 2010 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Umesh V. Waghmare
We use first-principles density functional theory based analysis to understand formation of ripples in graphene and related 2-D materials. For an infinite graphene, we show that ripples are linked...
Tutorial 1: Atomistic Material Science - ab initio simulations of materials
03 Nov 2011 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Alejandro Strachan
This lecture introduces first principles electronic structure calculations of materials properties.
It describes the approximations made to the many-body Schrodinger equation in Hartree Fock and...
Tutorial 2: Atomistic Material Science - Molecular Dynamics simulations of materials
This lecture introduces the concept of molecular dynamics
(MD) simulations of materials focusing on the physics and approximations underlying the simulations and interpretation of their results.
Tutorial 3a: Materials Simulation by First-Principles Density Functional Theory I
14 Sep 2010 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Umesh V. Waghmare
This lecture provides an introduction to first-principles density functional theory based methods for simulation of materials, with a focus on determination of interatomic force constants and...
Tutorial 3b: Materials Simulation by First-Principles Density Functional Theory II
This lecture is part of the
