Teaching Materials (1-3 of 3)

  1. Ductile and brittle failure in metals with molecular dynamics

    20 Feb 2019 | Contributor(s):: Sam Reeve, Alejandro Strachan

    In this computational lab you will perform online molecular dynamics (MD) simulations of nanoscale cracks under uniaxial tension through nanoHUB. Simulations with varying temperature and crystal structure will provide information to:Distinguish the atomistic mechanisms of ductile and...

  2. Understanding Fracture Behavior in Materials Using Cheese

    19 Jun 2018 | | Contributor(s):: Jessica Anne Krogstad, Nicole E Johnson-Glauch, Kaitlin Tyler, Rachael Mansbach, Andrew Ferguson

    This is a resource from the Girls Learning About Materials (GLAM) outreach camp run at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The learning objectives for this activity are:Students will compare and contrast different types of fracture behavior (ductile/brittle).Students...

  3. Exploring Materials Properties with Nanomaterial Mechanics Explorer Structure Files

    24 Mar 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Tanya Faltens

    This document describes how to generate and download simulation output files from the Nanomaterial Mechanics Explorer on nanoHUB and view them locally using OVITO.This can be particularly useful for more advanced manipulations of the trajectory files, and for sharing files with others, such...
