Movies of Simulations

These movies are available for download for individual use. They may be used for non-profit educational purposes with proper attribution. They are also not to be redistributed commercially without the written permission of the coauthors of the associated references.

1. Movies of an entropy driven nanomotor are available in quicktime and avi format.

2. Movies of crazing in polymer glasses are available for large and small (quicktime, avi) systems.

3. Movies of earthquake like deformations in a sheared solid are shown in earthquake movies. First the cumulative deformation is shown by plotting the local curl of the displacement field as a function of position. Then the incremental change in the curl over short intervals is shown.
