Abstract

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. The module consists of: i) Two introductory lectures (50 minutes each) available online as audiovisual presentations and, ii) Hands-on lab involving online molecular dynamics (MD) simulations via nanoHUB.org.
