MedeA 2.8 released

Forcefields ...

Embedded Atom Method with LAMMPS ...

  • MedeA supports EAM for metallic systems

  • EAM forcefields are supplied with MedeA, including Zhou's compendium for alloy systems.

MedeA-GIBBS ...

  • thermal expansivity and isothermal compressibility

  • total heat capacity

  • Joule-Thomson coefficient

VASP 5.2.11 ...

  • DFT-D2 approach of Grimme for van der Waals interactions improves description of molecular systems and weakly bound inorganic crystals

  • A broad range of additional enhancements and updates round out the VASP updates in MedeA 2.8.

Flowcharts ...
