Molecular Modeling of Soft Matter

ME 419

Fundamentals and application of statistical mechanics and molecular simulations towards modeling biological and soft materials. Students will learn a variety of computational techniques including energy minimization, molecular dynamics simulations, Monte Carlo simulations, and stochastic dynamics simulations. Students will obtain valuable hands on experience in using molecular simulation software, visualizing molecular systems, and analyzing simulation data for computing material properties. Prerequisites: Basic programming skills in C, MATLAB, Fortran, or Python. Basic undergraduate-level understanding of concepts in mathematics, physics, and chemistry.


Prerequisite: Mechanical Engineering 221L and 331L

Typically Offered
Fall Only
