Introduction and Educational Need
Students in civil engineering usually explore the components of buildings and other structures from a macro viewpoint. However, many critical elements of good design and safe structural engineering happen at the atomic level, such as material bonding and chemical properties. The StarMolsim tool allows students to learn these concepts through hands-on simulations.
The cross-discipline MIT Course 3.021 uses StarMolsim as...read more
Students quickly understand the tools' feature-set without having to acquire any extra programming or operating system skills.
