Atomistic Modeling at Experimental Strain Rates and Time Scales
Published: September 13, 2017

Abstract: I will present a new computational approach that couples a recently  developed potential energy surface exploration technique with applied mechanical loading to study the deformation of atomistic systems at strain rates that are much slower, i.e. experimentally-relevant, as compared to classical molecular dynamics simulations, and at time scales on the order of seconds or […]
