Coronavirus simulations by researchers from the Brunel University London

Researchers from the Brunel University London led by Dr Derek Groen have developed the Flu And Corona virus Simulator (FACS), a simulation tool that models the viral spread at the sub-national level, incorporating geospatial data sources to extract buildings and residential areas within a predefined region. Using FACS, the researchers can model Covid-19 spread at…

PhD studentship in Virtual Human Cardiovascular Modelling & Simulation

The Centre for Computational Science (CCS) of University College London (UCL) is offering a fully-funded studentship to a highly motivated candidate to start in September 2020. The studentship will cover tuition fees at UK/EU rate plus a maintenance stipend of £17,285 (tax free) per annum for three years. The post-holder will work primarily on scientific…

VECMA on FETFX e-Magazine

VECMA was featured in a FETFX e-Magazine article titled ‘Reliability and Reproducibility in Computational Science: Can We Trust Algorithms?’. The article mentions the progress with VECMAtk in terms of facilitating reliability in computer simulations, and features the newly-produced VECMA video.

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…
