Mechanical Properties of Polymer Nanocomposites via Multi-scale Modeling: Towards Non-classical Properties

Project description

Computational modelling leads to rational design

Mathematical models, simulations and big data algorithms enable us to see and predict the evolution of dynamic systems of interest within complex parameter spaces. The prediction of the behaviour of polymer nanocomposites (PNC), directly from their molecular structure, is one of these spaces. These materials hold great promise for novel devices and technologies in many fields, yet exploiting their potential requires the ability to design rationally, from atoms and molecules to bulk materials. The EU-funded NANOMEC project is developing hierarchical computational methods across scales, involving molecular simulations and continuum modelling (homogenisation) approaches, that could provide insight into unusual and exotic properties and behaviours of PNC that can be harnessed with targeted design.
