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…

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…

A new VECMA paper published

Anna Nikishova et. al recently published a paper on “Uncertainty Quantification of a multiscale model for In-Stent Restenosis” in a special issue on “Verification, Validation and Uncertainty Quantification of Cardiovascular Models” in Cardiovascular Engineering and Technology (https://doi.org/10.1007/s13239-018-00372-4). They applied a UQ quasi-Monte Carlo method and performed a Sobol sensitivity analysis to a two-dimensional version of…
