Abstract

New multiscale algorithms and a load-balancing scheme are combined for molecular-dynamics simulations of nanocluster-assembled ceramics on parallel computers. Million-atom simulations of the dynamic fracture in nanophase silicon nitride reveal anisotropic self-affine structures and crossover phenomena associated with fracture surfaces.
