Abstract: Abstract Molecular mechanics and dynamics have become a standard analysis tool used in drug design and synthesis, but it has not generally been used as part of structural and mechanical analysis. The need for such tools is an obvious extension of structure‐property correlations known in polymer formulation, engineering, and manufacture. This study probes the use of mechanics and dynamics techniques to help explain property trends found in hydrated polybenzimidazole (PBI).
