• Defects and deformation in nanostructured metals 

      Carlton, Christopher Earl (2009-12)
      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 (2010-05)
      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 ...
