About this book
The Handbook of Materials Modeling is a four-volume major reference for computational material scientists, serving a steadily growing community at the intersection of two mainstreams of global research, materials technology and computational science. Since its first publication in 2006 it has set a standard toward defining the broad community and stimulating its growth. The second edition reflects the significant developments that have occurred in all aspects of computational materials research, ranging from fundamental concepts to increasingly more realistic models and more powerful multiscale simulation methods in the intervening 10 years. This new edition has a three-fold objective:
• Strengthen the foundational attributes of materials theory, modeling and simulation wherever appropriate.
• Broaden the scope of HMM to include challenges and opportunities in emerging areas of interdisciplinary interest.
• Focus on applications to demonstrate and expand on the capabilities of current models and simulation methods.
The Handbook is organized in two parts. This is Part II: Applications. This part is focused on materials of current and emerging interest. By applications we mean new studies showing, in particular, the impact of diverse computational methods on understanding the physics of complex new unconventional materials, and presenting a critical assessment of algorithms and models in predicting the behavior of real materials.
