Simulation techniques play an important role in material and device design at the nanoscale. Among these techniques, molecular dynamics (MD) simulation has become a powerful tool for revealing complex physical phenomena. However, completely modeling nano-structured materials and nano-devices of tangible size using MD simulation is unrealistic, even when using today’s most powerful supercomputers. Most recently developed concurrent multiscale modeling techniques have shown promise in treating phenomena at nano and larger scales. However, these methods are still subject to some limitations. In the proposed work, we are specifically addressing these drawbacks by developing several advanced algorithms for maturization and commercialization of the Bridging Domain Method, developed by Dr. Xiao and his colleagues at the University of Iowa. At the end of the Phase I program, we will demonstrate the feasibility of seamlessly integrated multiscale and multi-physics modeling tool.
