Description

Molecular dynamics (MD) simulation is a significant technique to gain insight into mechanical behaviour of nanostructured (NS) materials and associated underlying deformation mechanisms at atomic scale. The purpose of this book is to detect and correlate critically current achievements and properly assess the state of the art in the mechanical behaviour study for NS material in the perspective of atomic scale simulation of deformation process. More precisely, the book aims to provide representative examples of mechanical behaviour studies carried out using MD simulations which provide contributory research findings towards progress in the field of NS material technology.
