Computer Simulation Techniques: Molecular Dynamics and Particle Simulations
Project by Polygence alum Rishaad
I made a literature review paper and a coding project.
They started it from zero. Are you ready to level up with us?
I did a paper and a coding project!
Molecular Dynamics in Materials Science and Engineering and Nanotechnology Literature Review Paper:
Molecular dynamics (MD) is a computer simulation technique that helps to explore the behavior and properties of molecules and atoms. MD has been used in research and development in many spaces, including materials science and engineering and nanotechnology. MD has been proven useful in topics like the nano-engineering of construction materials, correcting graphene planar defects, studying self-assembling biomaterials, and the densification, consolidation, and sintering of copper nanomaterials.
The purpose of my particle simulations is to illustrate a couple of phenomena in particle physics. In the respected field, a key challenge is the scale at which these phenomena occur. We cannot see particles with the human eye, so it defaults to a troublesome learning experience for others. Computer simulations in this field help provide insight into what happens in these phenomena. For this project, I made a simulation based on particle collisions and another simulation based on heat. Keep in mind that they may not be 100% accurate since they are supposed to be simplifications of the actual phenomenon, yet still mostly accurately depict it.

Review of mentor
He offered me support and guidance on what to do next. He helped me make compromises and gave me ideas on enhancements for my project. We also shared a lot of interests.
Hello! My name is Rishaad and my Polygence project is focused on the applications of computer simulations like molecular dynamics and particle simulations, and using them to model phenomena and conduct research.
My mentor was very helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable.
