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.
