Nanomechanics Simulation Tool: Dislocations Make or Break Materials
16 Mar 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Michael N Sakano
The goal of computational material science is to improve existing materials and design new ones through mathematical calculations. In particular, molecular dynamic simulations can allow for visualization of dislocations in a material, along with its resulting behavior when under stress. For...
