Highly efficient algorithms for massively parallel computers, interactive virtual environments for analyzing and steering simulations in real time, and data compression and mining schemes for input/output and knowledge discovery have led to rapid progress in large-scale molecular-dynamics simulations involving millions of atoms. Consequently, dynamic fracture of materials with realistic microstructures can now be modeled atom-by-atom.
