Abstract:
Molecular Dynamics (MD) simulations are used to examine selected mechanical and electrical properties of Sensor-Enabled Geosynthetics (SEG) samples. Dreiding force field is adopted for the simulations which are carried out in the LAMMPS© environment. The electrical conductivity and mechanical properties (e.g. load-displacement response) of the models are calculated and the influence of filler (i.e. CB) concentration on the SEG properties is investigated.
