Applications are invited for a Research Fellow to work with Professor Peter Coveney in the Department of Chemistry at University College London. The successful candidate will join a very active inter­disciplinary group in the Centre for Computational Science, working on projects in fields ranging from condensed matter physics and chemistry to life sciences and medicine.…

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:…

FabSim3 on open development

As of January 16th 2019, the FabSim3 GitHub repository is entirely public, allowing users to download any version of the code and to read and contribute to the various issues raised in the repository. Switching to open development has several major advantages, as the FabSim3 Development Team announced: “We like external users to use FabSim3,…

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…
