An Atomistic-to-Continuum Coupling Method for Heat Transfer in Solids

Abstract

In this work, we present a seamless, energy-conserving method to couple atomistic and continuum representations of a temperature field in a material. This technique allows a molecular dynamics simulation to be used in localized regions of the computational domain, surrounded and overlaid by a continuum finite element representation. Thermal energy can pass… (More)
