DAMASK is a unified multi-physics crystal plasticity simulation package. The solution of continuum mechanical boundary value problems requires a constitutive response that connects deformation and stress at each material point. This problem is solved in DAMASK on the basis of crystal plasticity using a variety of constitutive models and homogenization approaches. However, treating mechanics in isolation is no longer sufficient to study emergent advanced high-strength materials. In these materials, deformation happens interrelated with displacive phase transformation, significant heating, and potential damage evolution. Therefore, DAMASK is capable of handling multi-physics problems. Following a modular approach, additional field equations are solved in a fully coupled way using a staggered approach.
A unified application for soft materials simulation. This is a commercial application based on OCTA, and includes modeling/analysis tools for individual simulation engines, use-case databases, tools for structure-property relationship analysis as well as basic functions of OCTA. In particular, VSOP, an original solver for molecular dynamics, is added for fast simulation by MPI parallel computing.
