698 Multiscale and Coarse-Grained Modeling of Polymers

Thursday, November 12, 2015: 12:30 PM - 3:00 PM
251B (Salt Palace Convention Center)

This session focuses on multiscale simulation to characterize the behavior of polymeric materials and produce insight into structure property relationships. The appropriate simulation protocols span or connect two or more scales of time, size or detail in the polymeric materials. ***Note to faculty candidates: please include a note to the session chair during submission to alert them to your status*** +++Note: this session will be sorted jointly with Atomistic and Molecular Modeling and Simulations of Polymers. Authors may submit to either session.+++
