Atomistic Modeling of Materials Failure is an introduction to molecular and atomistic modeling techniques applied to solid deformation and fracture. Focusing on a variety of brittle, ductile and geometrically confined materials, this detailed overview includes computational methods at the atomic scale, and describes how these techniques can be used to model the dynamics of cracks, dislocations and other deformation mechanisms.
