Description

In nanotechnology, a particle is defined as a small object that behaves as a whole unit in terms of its transport and properties. It is further classified according to size: in terms of diameter, fine particles cover a range between 100 and 2500nanometers, while ultrafine particles, on the other hand, are sized between 1 and 100 nanometers. Similar to ultrafine particles, nanoparticles are sized between 1 and 100 nanometers.

  1. Multiscale Modelling of Nanoparticle Suspensions

    12 Jun 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Pietro Asinari

    In the present work a multiscale modelling approach is implemented to relate the nanoscale phenomena to the macroscopic bulk properties of nano-suspensions. Specifically, Molecular Dynamics (MD) simulations and Brownian Dynamics (BD) are synergistically integrated to understand the mechanisms...
