In a recent study by Matthew S. Radue and coworkers, experimental and theoretical methods were combined nicely to demonstrate the applicability of the ReaxFF potential for the prediction of mechanical properties of highly cross-linked epoxy polymers.
Based on the publication we have now created a new advanced ReaxFF tutorial on simulating mechanical properties by applying stress/strain to highly cross-linked epoxies, generating Young’s modulus, Poisson ratio & Yield Points.
This tutorial requires the installation of a recent AMS2019 installation – so request a 30-day free evaluation if you don’t already have access.
