StructureForce Field Generator for Molecular Dynamics Simulations
07 Aug 2017   Contributor(s):: Carlos Miguel Patiño, Lorena AlzateVargas, Alejandro Strachan
Atomistic and molecular simulations have become an important research field due to the progress made in computer performance and the necessity of new and improved materials. Despite this, first principle simulations of large molecules are still not possible because the high computational time and...

Multiscale Modelling of Nanoparticle Suspensions
12 Jun 2017   Contributor(s):: Pietro Asinari
In the present work a multiscale modelling approach is implemented to relate the nanoscale phenomena to the macroscopic bulk properties of nanosuspensions. Specifically, Molecular Dynamics (MD) simulations and Brownian Dynamics (BD) are synergistically integrated to understand the mechanisms...

Polymer Synthesis and Characterization in the Cloud: a nanoHUB Classroom Experience
22 Jan 2016   Contributor(s):: Coray Colina
In this talk, I’ll share the experience of teaching a junior undergraduate computational course in materials science and engineering, with over 70 participants. Both molecular and continuum methods were studied and applied to relevant materials problems. Students were able to build and...

Atomistic Modeling: Past, Present, and Future, MGI, ICME, etc.
03 Nov 2015   Contributor(s):: Paul Saxe
I will present a perspective on atomistic modeling — tools using quantum methods such as DFT, as well as molecular dynamics and Monte Carlo methods based on forcefields — over the past 30 years or so. While we are all caught up in the present, it is important to remember and realize...

IMA 2013 UQ: Bayesian Calibration of Molecular Dynamics Simulations for Composite Materials Properties
28 May 2014   Contributor(s):: Paul N. Patrone
In this talk, I discuss ongoing research whose goal is to determine, via Bayesian inference, an ensemble of inputs that represents a class of commercially important aminecured epoxies. We construct an analytical approximation (i.e. a surrogate or emulator) of the simulations, treating the input...

IMA 2013 UQ: DFTbased Thermal Properties: Three Levels of Error Management
02 Apr 2014   Contributor(s):: Kurt Lejaeghere
It is often computationally expensive to predict finitetemperature properties of a crystal from densityfunctional theory (DFT). The temperaturedependent thermal expansion coefficient α, for example, is calculated from the phonon spectrum, and the melting temperature Tm can only be obtained...

[Illinois] Beckman Graduate Seminar: Membrane Sculpting by FBAR Domains Studied by Molecular Dynamics Simulations
18 Dec 2012   Contributor(s):: Hang Yu
Interplay between cellular membranes and their peripheral proteins drives many processes in eukaryotic cells. Proteins of the Bin/Amphiphysin/Rvs (BAR) domain family, in particular, play a role in cellular morphogenesis, for example curving planar membranes into tubular membranes. However, it is...
