Abstract null null Cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs) thin films draw considerable interest in engineering and technological applications due to their excellent mechanical and physical properties associated with dynamic and microstructural features. Here, we employ coarse-grained molecular dynamics (CG-MD) simulations to investigate how the dynamics and microstructure change in the CNC films under tensile deformation. Our results show that the Young’s modulus can be quantitatively predicted by the po...

Understanding the crumpling behavior of two-dimensional (2D) macromolecular sheet materials is of fundamental importance in engineering and technological applications. Among the various properties of these sheets, interfacial adhesion critically contributes to the formation of crumpled structures. Here, we present a coarse-grained molecular dynamics (CG-MD) simulation study to explore the fundamental role of self-adhesion in the crumpling behaviors of macromolecular sheets having varying masses ...

Abstract Understanding the complex structural behaviors of crumpled graphene at a fundamental level is of critical importance in various engineering and technological applications. Here, we present a coarse-grained molecular dynamics (CG-MD) study for investigating structural behaviors of graphene sheets having varying sizes (or masses) during the crumpling process. The simulation results reveal that larger size graphene sheets at the initial two-dimension (2D) state tends to become more self-ad...

Abstract Owing to the impressive mechanical properties and renewability, nanocellulose has been increasingly used for the development of lightweight materials in various applications. Here, we present a coarse-grained (CG) modeling study for investigations of mechanical performance of cellulose-based bulk material consisting of disordered cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs), forming a porous network microstructure. The simulation results reveal that increasing density and cohesive interaction between ...
