The electronic transport, the storage capacity and the service life of the anode material for lithium ion batteries will be reduced seriously in the event of the material layering or cracking, so the anode material must have strong mechanical reliability. Firstly, in view of the traditional molecular dynamics ( MD) limited by the geometric scales of the model of Silicon functionalized graphenen (SFG) as lithium ion batteries anode material, some full atomic models of SFG were established using Tersoff potential and Lennard-Jones potential, and used to calculate the modulus and the adhesion properties. What's more, the assertion of mechanical equilibrium condition and energy conservation between full atomic and coarse-grain models through elastic strain energy were enforced to arrive at model parameters. The model of SFG coarse-grain bead-spring elements and its system energy function were obtained via full atomic simulations. Finally, the validity of the SFG coarse-grain model was verified by comparing the tensile property of coarse-grain model with full atoms model.
