Turn your computer codes into Apps connected to HPC in the Cloud

Dear Imechanicians, I hope this turns out to be useful for some of you who are interested in sharing their computer codes. We are working on a free platform,, to allow users to quickly turn your scripts into Apps connected with HPC power in the cloud. Currently, the system can easily handle Linux or Windows executables. We are developing new functionalities so that other typical scripts such as Abaqus UMATs, Python scripts, matlab scripts can also be disseminated as launchable Apps in cloud.

Computational inverse design of non-intuitive illumination patterns to maximize optical force or torque

This paper aims to maximize optical force or torque on arbitrary micro- and nanoscale objects using numerically optimized structured illumination. By developing a numerical framework for computer-automated design of 3d vector-field illumination, we demonstrate a 20-fold enhancement in optical torque per intensity over circularly polarized plane wave on a model plasmonic particle.

Simpleware software training days, May 2017

We run regular one-day training courses that include introductory, advanced and bespoke training days in the UK on using Simpleware software.

Join a session to learn about how to get the most out of Simpleware when generating models from 3D image data (MRI, CT. micro-CT...) suitable for FEA, CFD, CAD and 3D Printing applications.
