Modeling new materials
Jayaraman and her research team utilize UD’s Farber Cluster to simulate the materials with their new computational models. Then she shares these simulation results with her collaborators at the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the University of Massachusetts-Amherst. They then do the analogous experiments to verify the models.
“That’s the beauty of this project,” said Jayaraman. “The models we will develop in this work will be widely applicable, for studying materials well beyond just polymer nanocomposites.”
