    31 May 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Jim Belak

    Computational materials science is performed with a suite of applications that span the quantum mechanics of interatomic bonding to the continuum mechanics of engineering problems and phenomenon specific models in between. In this talk, we will review this suite and the motifs used in each of...

  9. Micromechanics of Polycrystals: Full-field Computations and Second-order Homogenization Approaches

    30 May 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Ricardo Lebensohn

    In the first part of this talk we will present a spectral formulation based on crystal plasticity and Fast Fourier Transforms (FFT) for the determination of micromechanical fields in plastically-deformed 3-D polycrystals. This formulation, pioneered by Suquet and coworkers as a fast algorithm to...

    29 May 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Venkattraman Ayyaswamy

    The first part of the talk deals with use of the PIC method with Monte Carlo collisions (MCC) between electrons and the ambient neutral gas to develop models to predict charge accumulation, breakdown voltage, etc. for various ambient gases, gap sizes, cathode material, and frequency of applied...

  11. [Illinois] Cancer Community Symposium 2012: Materials Science vs. Metastasis

    09 May 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Daniel A. Heller

    Metastasis, the spread of cancer cells from a primary tumor to seed secondary tumors in distant sites, is one of the greatest challenges in cancer treatment today. For many patients, by the time cancer is detected, metastasis has already occurred. Over 80% of patients diagnosed with lung cancer,...

  16. Computational Investigation of Point Defect Formation and Migration in Nuclear Fuels

    08 Mar 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Susan Sinnott

    The stabilities of selected fission products are investigated as a function of stoichiometry in uranium oxide. The approach is density functional theory (DFT) that is used to calculate the incorporation and solution energies of solid and gaseous fission products at the anion and cation vacancy...

  17. Density Functional Theory: A great physics success story

    01 Mar 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Kieron Burke

    Density functional theory began with the work of Thomas and Fermi, at about the same time as Schroedinger wrote his famous equation. I will explain in general terms what density functional theory is and describe some problems of current interest.
