OCTA is an integrated simulation system for soft materials developed by the joint project of industry and academia funded by Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry(METI), Japan. OCTA consists of four simulation engines named COGNAC(Molecular dynamics simulation), PASTA(rheology simulation), SUSHI(mean field theory), MUFFIN(continuum theory) and a simulation platform (GOURMET).
An open-source application for first-principles calculation based on pseudo- potential and real-space basis. It performs electronic-state calculation such as band calculation of solids and structure optimization for a variety of physical systems. The method of time-dependent density functional theory (TDDFT) is implemented, which allows simulation of dynamical phenomena with real-time evolution of electronic states, such as chemical reaction and electronic response to time-dependent external fields. Comes with detailed tutorials and comprehensive manuals.
An application for first-principles calculation based on the order-N method. This application can perform electronic-state calculation and band calculation for various physical systems. It supports the DFT+U method, the time-dependent DFT method, molecular dynamics, etc., and can also treat van der Waals forces and phonons. By using support applications, generation of input files, transformation between different file formats, and analysis of numerical results can be performed.
An open-source application for visualization of atoms and molecules developed for molecular dynamics. This application supports a number of input file formats for molecular configration, and can perform visualization of three-dimensional atom configration as well as creation of a animation. The main feature of this application is that various useful analysis tools can be used by intuitive control of a graphical user interface (GUI).
An open-source application for translating chemical structure format files. More than 110 formats are supported. This application is actively being developed taking into account use and construction of database and application to infomational technology in chemistry (chemoinformatics). A graphical user interface is alsp provided for Windows.
Open source software package to visualize scientific/engineering data. This is provided as a GUI application based on X window system to move the camera, modify parameters, and play animation. This supports several data formats; CDF, NetCDF, and so on.
An open-source multi-purpose application for simulation of fluids and continuous fields. This application can treat complex fluids including chemical reaction, turbulence, thermal condition, and combustion as well as thermal conduction of solids, stress fields, magnetohydrodynamics, and so on. It supports parallel computing, and also prepares pre- and post-processing functions. It is coded by C++ to keep high efficiency in development, debugging, and maintenance.
Open-source tools and a database for molecular simulation. Data of molecular models (interatomic potentials and force fields), result data of molecular simulation, and test tools can be downloaded freely. API (Application Programming Interface) for exchanging information between atomistic simulation codes and interatomic models is also provided.
OpenMX is a first-principles software based on the pseudo-atomic localized basis functions. It calculates electronic structure rapidly for a wide range of materials including crystals, interfaces, liquids, etc. It speedily provides molecular dynamics simulation and structural optimization of large-scale systems and also implements a hybrid parallelism. It is able to deal with non-collinear magnetism and non-equilibrium Green’s function calculations for electrical conductions.
An open-source framework for execution management of numerical simulation. By registering target simulators, information at the time of execution (parameters, date and time, hostname, version of simulators, etc.) and calculation results are saved automatically on database. Job submission and browse of job status can be performed efficiently from web browsers.
