Hartree Centre

Print

A venture by the Science & Technology Facilities Council and IBM allows the chemistry-using industries to solve business challenges through leveraging High Performance Computing (HPC), visualisation and ‘big data’ technology platforms to model, simulate and predict which high fidelity and speed.

Benefits include:

  • Sharper innovation and improved global competitiveness
  • Lower research and development costs
  • Shorter time to  market

Capabilities include:

Materials Science & Computational Chemistry

Model, simulate and predict the structure of materials in order to develop new materials which can result in new technologies, for example

  • Formulate products using mesoscale modelling and design technologies for property prediction and control
  • Catalyst technology modelled at the atomistic scale for optimised fuel cell performance
  • Packaging material innovations for greener products
  • Oil extraction process enhanced through multi-scale modelling of complex fluids
  • Innovations in nanoelectronics through a deeper understanding of atomistic behaviour at material interfaces

Service offerings:

Collaborative R&D

Outcome focused projects

“Help me make a better…..”

Software & Algorithms

New software applications for HPC or Big Data

New Algorithms

Optimisation of existing codes for new platforms / architectures

Training & Skills

Logical course curriculum to broaden and deepen adoption and application of Modeling & Simulation

Platform as a Service
