Homework assignment: learning about elastic constants via molecular dynamics simulations
11 Mar 2015   Contributor(s):: Alejandro Strachan, David Ray Johnson
In this homework assignment students will use molecular dynamics to compute the elastic constants of metals using an embedded atom model to describe atomic interactions. They will deform a single crystal along different directions and obtain c11, c12 and c44 elastic constants from the...

Melting via molecular dynamics simulations
10 Mar 2015   Contributor(s):: Alejandro Strachan
In this assignment you will use MD simulations to study melting in metals using the nanoMATERIALS simulation tool in nanoHUB. You will build a supercell and heat it up to study its melting. You can visualize the atomic configuration as the temperature is increased and after melting. From the...

OnlineSimulation tutorial and assignment: bonding curves in H2 and He2 molecules
21 Feb 2015   Contributor(s):: Alejandro Strachan
In this tutorial students will use density functional theory (DFT) calculations using the nanoHUB tool SeqQuest to study bonding in two simple molecules: H2 and He2. The tutorial shows how to compute energy as a function of bond distance and extract the equilibrium bond distance and bond...
