Did you miss the Computational Polymer Science: Atomistic Modeling Tools and Materials Applications webinar? You still have access to the webinar recording.
Polymers feature in a broad array of modern products and devices, either as individual homopolymers and copolymers, or more commonly in combination with other types of polymer, small molecule (gas, solvent or plasticizer), or inorganic and metallic components. This webinar began by summarizing the polymer-related atomistic model building, simulation and analysis tools integrated into the MedeA software environment, which find uses in a variety of industries including aerospace and automotive, electronics, surface coatings and adhesives and personal care. We then proceeded to illustrate applications to a number of industrially important topics, including mechanical properties of bulk glassy engineering polymers, gas and small molecule permeability, gelation in densely cross-linked polymers, surface properties and adhesion, and studies of reinforced aerospace and automotive composite materials.
