• Defects and deformation in nanostructured metals 

    Carlton, Christopher Earl (2010-06-29)
    A better understanding of how the nanoscale environment affects the mechanical properties of materials, in particular metallic nanoparticles and nanocrystalline metals is vital to the development of next generation materials. ...
  • Multi-material nanoindentation simulations of viral capsids 

    Subramanian, Bharadwaj (2010-11-10)
    An understanding of the mechanical properties of viral capsids (protein assemblies forming shell containers) has become necessary as their perceived use as nano-materials for targeted drug delivery. In this thesis, a ...
