Overview:
OCTA is an integrated simulation system for soft
materials. The objective is to bridge
microstructural characteristics of soft
materials with their material characteristics
by simulation and modeling. Soft materials are
made of complex moleauks, consisting of millions
of atoms, having internal structures at many
levels, and exhibiting complex responses over
time scales ranging from nano-seconds to years.
Theoretical models for soft materials are quite
diverse and have been proposed to deal with
mesoscopic phenomena of soft materials. Our task
was to construct a simulation system by
integrating such diverse models, OCTA consists
of four simulation engines (COGNAC, PASTA, SUSHI,
MUFFIN) and a simulation platform (GOURMET)
