Undergraduate materials engineering students have difficulty conceptualizing the atomic-level processes responsible for plastic deformation. To aid in developing this conceptual understanding, interactive molecular dynamics (MD) simulations were introduced into the sophomore-level materials curriculum, integrating simulation with the traditional tensile testing laboratory. Students perform a tensile test using MD simulations on nanowire samples, and then compare these results with those from the physical tensile tests to develop a visual and more intuitive picture of plastic deformation of crystalline materials.
The shear stress relaxation of a thermally reversible, physically
associating solution formed from a triblock copolymer in solvent selective
for the mid-block was found to be well described over a broad temperature
range by a stretched exponential function with a temperature independent
‘stretching exponent’, β ≈ 1/3. This same exponent value
has been suggested to have particular significance in describing structural
relaxation in a wide range of disordered viscoelastic materials ranging from
associating polymer materials (‘gels’) to glass-forming liquids. We quantify
the temperature dependence of the high frequency, or short time, shear
modulus as function of temperature and find that this property also follows
a variation often observed in gels and glass-forming materials.
