Illinois Rocstar Awarded Phase I Nuclear Energy System Contract

Illinois Rocstar is excited to announce a new Nuclear Energy Modeling System (NEMoSys) Phase I SBIR project to create a modular, open-source modeling and simulation (M&S) grid data transfer resource. The envisioned NEMoSys product will be a modular, extensible resource designed to be used in both typical application development systems as well as distributed web-services environments.

Chemlab Phase I SBIR

Illinois Rocstar has begun a new DOE Phase I SBIR entitled the “The Chemlab Chemistry and Materials Science Lifecycle Data Repository.” The Chemlab project is designed to provide a place for scientists and engineers not only to archive and document their simulation datasets, including provenance information and, at times, output data (or detailed information about the generation of the output data) but to present a location to find datasets again later.

Going beyond convention.

Illinois Rocstar does simulation science; we build the tools, the infrastructures, and the interfaces to help industry gain a return on their investment for using modeling & simulation to improve their processes and products. From macroscale multiphysics that couple fluids, solid mechanics, materials, and chemistry to microscale crystal-level modeling of a variety of granular materials, Illinois Rocstar has tools to help address these areas. Using our open-source Illinois Rocstar Multiphysics Application Coupling Toolkit, developers can build new multiphysics, multiscale applications from open-source or proprietary codes in fractions of the time it would have required previously. We apply the right tools for solving modeling and simulation problems relevant to industry, government, and academia.
