  8. Efficient Exploration of Quantified Uncertainty in Granular Crystals

    16 Mar 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Juan Camilo Lopez

    This work presents a way of quantifying uncertainty in granular crystals in a computationally efficient way. To accomplish this, a low dimensional response surface is approximated through the method of active subspaces. Within this framework, special structure within the inputs is exploited to...

  9. Nanomechanics Simulation Tool: Dislocations Make or Break Materials

    16 Mar 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Michael N Sakano

    The goal of computational material science is to improve existing materials and design new ones through mathematical calculations. In particular, molecular dynamic simulations can allow for visualization of dislocations in a material, along with its resulting behavior when under stress. For...
