A great deal of effort has gone into cleaning up the code and debugging it. Despite this, the code almost surely contains additional bugs. Use the code as a jumping off point for your own research.
THE DEVELOPERS (TADMOR AND MILLER) WILL NOT BE ABLE TO OFFER SUPPORT OR TO ASSIST YOU WITH DEBUGGING. However, an on-line discussion forum has been set up to allow users to assist each other and to ask questions.
The download package includes:
- Quasicontinuum version 1.4 source code written in Fortran 90.
- Documentation (which is also available here)
- Three example test cases:
- Grain boundary shear showing a how a shear stress applied to an aluminum bi-crystal results in grain boundary motion.
- Nanoindentation in aluminum showing dislocation nucleation beneath a rigid flat punch.
- Friction at the nano-scale involving the sliding contact of two nano-asperities.
