Roughness of many natural and engineered surfaces follows a scaling law called self-affine scaling. In project chka18, the origins of self-affine have been investigated using Molecular Dynamics simulations. It was shown that the self-affine roughness emerges naturally during deformation of initially flat surfaces in different materials.
