Self-assembly and dispersion of graphene oxide structures in polymers

Graphene oxide is extremely versatile, with potential applications in many engineering fields. But for its effective use, control of its structure is essential. For instance, thin films and membranes require highly ordered nanoparticle arrangements; composites require dispersed nanoparticles, and hydrogels require 3D porous arrangements. However, the structure of graphene oxide can vary significantly depending on…

VECMA VVUQ Toolkit Month 9 Beta Release

The VECMA project has previously made three releases internal to the project (at Months 1, 3 and 6), and have already successfully applied two components (FabSim3 and EasyVVUQ) to multiple applications.  The Month 9 release of the VECMA VVUQ Toolkit has occurred on schedule, on Thursday 14 March, 2019. It is comprised of two parts:…

PCCP Paper: Micromechanical Exfoliation of Graphene on the Atomistic Scale

A new VECMA paper has been accepted for publication in Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics, on Micromechanical Exfoliation of Graphene on the Atomistic Scale. Graphene is known for being the strongest material in the world, lightweight and with extraordinary electrical, thermal and optical properties. Unsurprisingly, it offers many benefits for commercial application.  There are various methods for producing graphene…

Special Issue – Multiscale modelling, simulation and computing: from the desktop to the exascale

A theme issue dedicated to ‘Multiscale modelling, simulation and computing: from the desktop to the exascale’ has been published in the Transactions of the Royal Society A. The theme issue presents cutting-edge research in generic multiscale modelling and multiscale computing, and applications thereof on high-performance computing systems. It starts with a position paper to discuss…
