Iacovella, Christopher R. and Glotzer, Sharon C. (2008) Polymer Scaling Module. In Glotzer group. Depts of Chemical Engineering, Materials Science & Engineering, Macromolecular Science, and Physics,University of Michigan.
This simulation consists of a single-component system of particles that are permanently bonded together via Finitely extensible non-linear elastic (FENE) springs. Particles either
interact via the Lennard-Jones Potential or the Weeks-Chandler-Andersen Potential to model different solvent selectivity. The system runs NVT Brownian Dynamics. The length of the polymer, solvent
conditions, and runtime are all user-modifiable variables. The simulation outputs the end to end distance. Additional information is also provided such simulation model/method description, detailed
instructions for running the simulation, tutorials, sample questions, literature examples, and links to other relevant data.

Note, at the current time, these modules will only run on Mac OS X based machines (Intel or PowerPC). Support for additional platforms is underway.
