Importance of Modeling and Simulation of Materials in Research


All researchers have experience with various complicated phenomena and processes in materials and have contact with understanding of different complex dynamical systems. Consequently, one has to predict and optimize the system under study and compare the output results to its experimental setup. The experimental setup is done to confirm and spread out information about the system; however still, many researchers are not familiar with the results arising from the experimental setup or fabrications processes. To obtain valid experimental results, it is necessary to pay carful attentions to the tools, devices and the applied techniques for measuring and observations detectors. This experimentations and fabrications process cover all area from forming and characterizations of nanostructures to macrostructures. In system characterizations, it is common to apply system modeling to predict and represent the system by a mathematical model that is accomplishable due to the relations between the inputs and outputs defined by formulas.
