The Computational Materials Science Group conducts research on materials and dense plasmas using atomistic and mesoscopic simulation codes for basic science and in support of programmatic missions. Multiscale modeling of strength and other constitutive properties is a major part of our work. Some of our materials simulations are at the frontiers of Large-Scale Computing, using in excess of a million processors on the LLNL supercomputers. We have demonstrated expertise in developing codes (Cardioid, ddcMD, ParaDiS) for these massively parallel simulations.

Our principal focus areas:
