Karimi and LeBlond Publish on Fracturing and Failure of Materials

Majid Karimi (Physics) and Carl LeBlond (Chemistry) published “Molecular Dynamics Simulations of Brittle Fracture in fcc Crystalline Materials in the Presence of Defects” in the journal Computational Materials Science

This work provides a deeper understanding of the process of fracturing and the factors that affect failure in materials, and it provides a more accurate prediction of material strength and the development of methods to prevent material failure. 

J. Petucci, C. LeBlond, M. Karimi Comput. Mat. Sci. 2014, 86, 130-139.
