  1. Atomistic Modeling of the Mechanical Properties of Nanostructured Materials

    16 Apr 2007 | | Contributor(s):: SeongJun Heo, Susan Sinnott

    The mechanical properties of carbon nanotubes are studied by using classical molecular dynamics simulations. Especially, the effects of filling, temperature, and functionalization on CNT's tensional and twisting properties are considered in this study.

  4. Materials strength: does size matter? nanoMATERIALS simulation toolkit tutorial

    01 Feb 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Alejandro Strachan

    Molecular dynamics (MD) is a powerful technique to characterize the fundamental, atomic-level processes that govern materials behavior and is playing an important role in our understanding of the new phenomena that arises in nanoscale and nanostructured materials and result in their unique...

  5. Orientational Dependence of Friction in Polyethylene

    16 Apr 2007 | | Contributor(s):: SeongJun Heo

    The frictional properties of polyethylene polymer are investigated by using classical molecular dynamics simulations. Especially, the sliding orientational effect is considered in this study. The results of polyethylene are also compared to those of polytetrafluoroethylene(PTFE).
