Computational Framework for Modeling of Multi-Scale Processes
Multi-Scale Computational Framework (MSCF) integrating a Computational Fluid Dynamics software for reactor-scale processes, a Kinetic Monte Carlo solver for the growth of molecular structures, and a Molecular Dynamic simulator for the self-assembly of atoms into molecular structures is presented. The integration was achieved using equation-free Gap-tooth and Coarse Timestepper algorithms. The MSCF was demonstrated for a plasma-assisted synthesis of vertically aligned carbon nanotubes (CNTs) in an inductively coupled C2H4/H2 plasma system. Paths for delivering a supply of carbon onto catalyst/CNT interface, formation of single-wall and multi-wall CNTs, and time-dependences for probabilities of carbon incorporation into CNTs are discussed.
