Despite great advances in computation, materials design is still science fiction. The construction of structure–property relations on the quantum scale will turn computational empiricism into true design.

    Long nonlinear wave runup on the coasts of trapezoidal bays is studied analytically in the framework of one-dimensional (1-D) nonlinear shallow-water theory with cross-section averaging, and is also studied numerically within a two-dimensional (2-D) nonlinear shallow water theory. In the 1-D...

    A new kind of carbon foam, which is based on the welding of single-walled carbon nanotubes, is built in a computer simulation. Its precisely defined architecture and all atomic positions allow one to perform detailed theoretical analysis of the properties. Such foam is as light as 1/9 of steel,...

    The free energy, entropy, and work of formation of H3O+(H2O) n clusters (n=1-27) in water vapor (300 K) were calculated by the Monte Carlo method. Binary correlation functions were calculated. The calculations are based on the nonpair interaction model presented in the previous publication. The...

    This paper presents computer simulation of the forging process using the finite volume method (FVM). The process of forging is highly non-linear, where both large deformations and continuously changing boundary conditions occur. In most practical cases, the initial billet shape is relatively...

    Hard magnetic materials are usually measured and used in an open magnetic circuit, for which demagnetizing effects are present. The applied field Ha has been conventionally corrected to the volume averaged internal field H by a formula H=Ha-NmM, where M is volume averaged magnetization and Nm is...
