PPPL's Ninaad Desai Roadrunner models shock wave effects on materials at atomic scale

Because of the Roadrunner supercomputer’s unique capability, scientists are for the first time attempting to create atomic-scale models that describe how voids are created in materials, mostly metals, how they grow, and merge; how the materials may swell or shrink under stress; and how once broken bonds might reattach, and they’re doing it at size and time scales that approach those of actual experiments, so that the models can be validated experimentally.
