Summary on Grant Application Form
UKCOMES addresses scientific and engineering problems at mesoscales which lie between atomistic and macroscales. Such problems are ubiquitous in, for example, a wide variety of physical, chemical, biological, biomedical, material, pharmaceutical and engineering phenomena and processes. Mesoscale engineering sciences are truly interdisciplinary and cross-cutting, uniting the engineering and science research communities. UKCOMES brings together all the required expertise to make critical theoretical discoveries and translate these new concepts into software that is able to exploit today's and future high-end computing (HEC) developments. The modelling and simulation methodologies are based on non-continuum or discrete approaches, including lattice Boltzmann method (LBM), dissipative particle dynamics (DPD), smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH) and coarse-grained molecular dynamics (CG-MD). UKCOMES has been funded by the EPSRC (Grant No. EP/L00030X/1, 01/06/2013 - 31/05/2018) for HEC resources. It has also won an award under the EPSRC Computational Science and Engineering Software Flagship Project Call (EP/P022243/1, 06/2017 - 05/2020, HiLeMMS, £513,863). The expanded UKCOMES will capitalize on its successes to lead the research field in the world and to deliver both academic and end-user impact.
