Homework assignment: learning about elastic constants via molecular dynamics simulations
17 Feb 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...
nanoHUB Materials Simulation Homework: Engineering the Yield Stress of a Material
17 Feb 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Marisol Koslowski, Tanya Faltens
This homework assignment uses the nanoplasticity lab simulation tool to enable students to explore how grain size and the competing plastic deformation mechanisms of dislocation motion and grain boundary sliding affect the yield stress of a sample. Students create conditions that lead to...
Mechanical Behavior of MEMS/NEMS
