PREPRINT: Molecular Modeling of the Microstructure Evolution during the Carbonization of PAN-Based Carbon Fibers
23 Mar 2017 | Papers | Contributor(s): Alejandro Strachan, Saaketh Desai
Development of high strength carbon fibers (CFs) requires an understanding of the relationship between the processing conditions, microstructure and resulting properties. We developed a molecular model that combines kinetic Monte Carlo (KMC) and molecular dynamics (MD) techniques to predict the microstructure evolution during the carbonization process of carbon fiber manufacturing. The model accurately predicts the cross-sectional microstructure of carbon fibers, predicting features such as...

Purdue Workshop—Predictive materials modeling and simulations: nano- and micro-mechanics
This by-invitation-only workshop will focus on recent progress and current challenges in the area of experimentally validated, predictive modeling of mechanical properties of nano- or micro-engineered materials. Areas of interest include micro- and nano-electromechanical devices...
Learning Module: Atomic Picture of Plastic Deformation in Metals
The main goal of this learning module is to introduce students to the atomic-level processes responsible for plastic deformation in crystalline metals and help them develop a more intuitive understanding of how materials work at molecular scales. Image to the right shows plastic deformation of...

What is MD?
Molecular dynamics involves the numerical solution of the classical equations of motion (F=ma) for every single atom in material. The result is a very detailed description of the temporal evolution of the material: we obtain the position, velocity and force of every atom as a...
