QC -- Quasicontinuum method

 

The Quasicontinuum (QC) method is a mixed continuum and atomistic approach for simulating the mechanical response of polycrystalline materials at zero temperature. The method reproduces the results of standard Lattice Statics techniques at a fraction of the computational cost.
