Users Group Meeting 2011
Nov 2-4, 2011 Boston, MA
Each year Materials Design® invites customers to 3 days of training, scientific, and technical exchange in the form of a user group meeting (UGM). This year we met (after a mighty Nor'easter) in the friendly and historic city of Boston.
Customers, Materials Design®, and MedeA® alike benefit greatly from the UGM. These interactions help us focus on science and the technical details needed to obtain high quality results with VASP, LAMMPS, MOPAC, and Gibbs.
The training workshop focused on the many new features of MedeA®, and in particular:
Getting more information from Databases and Phase diagrams
From simple to "realistic" structures: disorder, defects,
Flowcharts to cut straight to science and property prediction with VASP, LAMMPS, MOPAC, and Gibbs. Switching between different projects.
Tips, Tricks, and Tools for creating models: solids, alloys, surfaces, molecules, nano particles and blending such objects together
Nanoparticles and thermal conductivity
Nanoelectronic device simulation on SiC - showcasing the capabilities of VASP5 and the powerful analytical tools in MedeA
The scientific presentations focused on topical issues including:
Catalysis and how to maximize the performance precious metals with nano particles
Better understanding (and suppression) of Sn whisker growth in satellites, where repair is not an option
Long term reliability: predictions for materials in nuclear applications
Testing the limits: metal deformation under shockwaves
Basic assumptions: when does isotropic start for a material with a finite grain size?
We have summarized here the meeting agenda and provided links to selected presentations (for customers with accounts on this site). If you have questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact us at email@example.com
