Research Project

Molecular dynamics simulations of combustion rates and behaviors in nanostructured reactive systems

Different atomistic models of Ni/Al metallic nanolaminates are simulated with varying conditions in programming softwares to develop understanding and hopefully use for the ignition and reactions, and more of these nanostructures.
