We examine the performance and behavior of the consistent embedding multi-scale simulation techniques described in the preceding article. The test is bulk amorphous silica, primarily in the small-strain regime. We also examine some practical issues that arise when the technique is used to model mechanical failure. For context, we present results of classical molecular dynamics simulations of fracture mechanisms of amorphous silica.
