Materials Modelling Software Market

We have published a new market research report on materials modelling software. The report provides a focus on the study of materials in any field by any type of physics-based model. It furthermore delineates materials modelling from the wider Computer-Aided Engineering and Cheminformatics markets that have been the subject of numerous studies. Based on data […]

Industry Case Studies: combining discrete and continuum modelling to address industrial R&D challenges

Materials modelling is used today by a range of industries to improve efficiency and achieve breakthroughs in the development of new and improved materials and processes. A set of four case studies has been developed by the European Materials Modelling Council which demonstrate how industrial R&D problems have been addressed by the integration of different […]

A Real-World Perspective …

An article just appeared which summarizes (and includes case examples for) some important lessons for the application of computational methods in drug design. I write about it here because it includes important messages also for the materials modelling and design field. There are differences of course since materials innovation is not always about new materials […]

Boeing is moving ahead with integrating chemistry and materials modelling into the product life cycle

The EMMC Roadmap for Materials Modelling is calling for a number of actions to increase the application and impact of materials modelling in industry. In its Objectives and Vision it states that “the ultimate goal is that materials modelling and simulation will become an integral part of product life cycle management in European industry” and […]

Economic impact of materials modelling

Here is the executive summary of a new report on the economic impact of materials modelling, co-authored with Christa Court from MRIGlobal in the framework of the European Materials Modelling Council (EMMC) and the International Materials Modelling Board (IM2B). The full text as well as survey form is available here. At the core of the […]

Interoperability in Multiscale Modeling of Nano-enabled Materials

The European Multi-scale Modelling Cluster is going to hold a workshop on Interoperability in Multiscale Modeling of Nano-enabled Materials 28th – 29th May 2015 at University of Jyväskylä, Finland. The workshop program has just been posted, and I look forward to exciting, wide-ranging and in-depth discussion about the way forward on topics such as materials […]

Success Stories and Economic Impact of Materials Modelling

In the context of my work with the European Materials Modelling Council, I recently launched a survey to gather success stories and information about the economic impact of materials modelling. The survey aims to build on my previous report which was mainly based on a literature review.The survey is inspired by studies that have been […]

The economic impact of molecular modelling of chemicals and materials

Here is the executive summary of an extensive report from Goldbeck Consulting which is available here (The economic impact of modelling) or by request from The evidence for economic impact of molecular modelling of chemicals and materials is investigated, including the mechanisms by which impact is achieved and how it is measured. Broadly following […]
