Computer modelling is fundamental in nowadays materials engineering as it allows researchers to understand and predict materials properties such as stability and reactivity. This can be also used to optimize the materials processing routes. The research on computer-aided modelling in our department is carried out in the groups led by Professors Kirk Bevan, Roderick Guthrie, Mainul Hasan, Jun Song and In-Ho Jung.
Professors Guthrie and Hasan focus on the Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation.
Professor In-Ho Jung focuses on the computational thermodynamic modeling and database development for metallic and ceramic systems to design new materials and optimize processing routes based on the FactSage software which is being used by several hundreds of customers world-wide.

Professor Bevan’s research group explores nanoscale electronic materials and devices, to develop next-generation energy, computing, and sensing technologies. This is accomplished through the application and development of technology computer aided design (TCAD) methods. The ultimate goal of this research is to drive the design and discovery of new technologies through electronic design automation (EDA).
