Molecular Dynamics Simulations
The fracture of two-dimensional notched solids under tension was
studied using million atom systems. Many recent laboratory findings
occur in the simulation experiments, one of the most intriguing being
the dynamic instability of the crack tip as it approaches a fraction
of the sound speed.
Here are two animations that show visualizations of the large-scale (351 kB) as well as the atomistic (1.6 MB) dynamics. The visualizations
were created using PV-WAVE.
Here is a hyper-media version of a
paper about this study which was published in Physical Review Letters
(Farid F. Abraham, D. Brodbeck, R.A. Rafey and W.E. Rudge, Phys. Rev.
Lett. 73, 272 (1994)).
dynamics simulation was motivated by the head-disk interface.
Here are two animations showing two microasperities colliding at low (209 kB) and high (214 kB) impact velocities.
These visualizations were created using Data
This is a presentation of various aspects of large-scale
molecular-dynamics simulations of a model for tethered membranes.
