Multiscale Simulations for Computational Nanomechanics

Division of Mechanics and Computation and Department of Mechanical Engineering, Stanford University

This is an abstract for a presentation given at the
Seventh Foresight Conference on Molecular Nanotechnology.
There will be a link from here to the full article when it is available on the web.


Computer simulations provide an important research tool for molecular nanotechnology by creating a virtual design space in which experimentally inaccessible physical domains can be explored. Currently available engineering simulations can be classified as continuum finite element, atomistic, and quantum simulation methods according to the granularity of the physical system models. In this talk, we will review the current research development at Stanford Multiscale Simulation Laboratory to develop multiscale simulation methodology which can seamlessly combine these methods. We will also discuss about the current research on nanomechanics using atomistic and quantum simulations.
