Atomistic Modeling of Glass Structures and Interfaces
This session features progress in understanding the structure and properties of glass through classical and ab initio atomistic simulations. The focus will be on interpretation of short and medium range glass structure, calculation and prediction of macroscopic properties, and the structural origins of these properties as elucidated through atomistic simulations. Special attention will be given to understanding surface and interfacial behavior and the dissolution processes of glasses. Development of interatomic potentials, methodologies to extend the time and length scales, and other challenges in glass modeling are also within the scope of this session.
