MedeA 2.15 released

June 29, 2014

What’s New in MedeA Version 2.15

MedeA 2.15 brings substantial new capabilities and features to the MedeA environment: P3C (Polymer Property Prediction using Correlation) now provides interactive property reporting which can be used during the construction of repeat units, InfoMaticA structural databases have been enhanced to reflect the latest updates to vendor databases, and the LAMMPS version employed by MedeA-LAMMPS has been updated to enable the use of a range of the latest LAMMPS developments and forcefield capabilities.


Extensive enhancements to the MedeA environment include support for IntelMPI 4.1 for improved compute server performance, a new Flowchart library, and improved support for fixed atoms in Clean and Simple Dynamics.


MedeA is the leading environment for Materials Design, Inc., modeling, and simulation for Windows and Linux environments.
