A new methodology to assess material failure subjected to stochastic loads is proposed, titled Nanoscale Incremental Dynamic Analysis (NIDA), which is adopted from performance-based assessment in structural engineering. Using full atomistic molecular dynamics, proof-of-concept simulations produce the material fragility curve of a simple carbon nanotube.
