Homework assignment: learning about elastic constants via molecular dynamics simulations
11 Mar 2015 | Teaching Materials | 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...
Melting via molecular dynamics simulations
10 Mar 2015 | Teaching Materials | 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...

IMA 2013 UQ: Bayesian Calibration of Molecular Dynamics Simulations for Composite Materials Properties
28 May 2014 | Online Presentations | 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 amine-cured epoxies. We...
IMA 2013 UQ: DFT-based Thermal Properties: Three Levels of Error Management
02 Apr 2014 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Kurt Lejaeghere
It is often computationally expensive to predict finite-temperature properties of a crystal from density-functional theory (DFT). The temperature-dependent thermal expansion coefficient α, for...
