Computational Nanoscience, Lecture 5: A Day of In-Class Simulation: MD of Carbon Nanostructures
out of 5 stars
13 Feb 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Jeffrey C Grossman, Elif Ertekin
In this lecture we carry out simulations in-class, with guidance from the instructors. We use the LAMMPS tool (within the nanoHUB simulation toolkit for this course). Examples include calculating the energy per atom of different fullerenes and nantubes, computing the Young's modulus of a...

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