A unified and memory efficient framework for simulating mechanical behavior of carbon nanotubes
Carbon nanotubes possess many interesting properties, which make them a promising material for a variety of applications. In this paper, we present a unified framework for the simulation of the mechanical behavior of carbon nanotubes. It allows the creation, simulation and visualization of these structures, extending previous work by the research group “MISMO” at TU Darmstadt. In particular, we develop and integrate a new matrix-free iterative solving procedure, employing the conjugate gradient method, that drastically ...
Gone with the internet - How the old education was lost
Despite its young history, Computer Science Education has seen a number of "revolutions". Being a veteran in the field, the author reflects on the many changes he has seen in computing and its teaching. The intent of this personal collection is to point out that most revolutions came unforeseen and that many of the new learning initiatives, despite high financial input, ultimately failed. The author then considers the current revolution (MOOC, inverted lectures, peer instruction, game design) and, based on the ...
