Welcome to our department

The division Computational Material Sciences is part of the Simulation Science Center Clausthal-Göttingen (SWZ). The SWZ is one of the leading interdisciplinary research facilities in the field of multiscale simulation.

The division deals with material simulations of heterogeneous structures on the atomistic and mesoscopic scale. Molecular dynamics simulations are a powerful tool to understand physical processes on the microscale. In particular, the material behavior under high mechanical stress is important for material sciences aiming at producing new materials with better properties, e.g. higher stiffness.

Since phenomena on different length and time scales interact, we also focus on the transition from atomistic to continuous models. Special emphasis is put on the characterization of plasticity by means of multiscale methods.
