Products: Material Point Method (MPM)

WMI has extensive experience in the development and utilization of the Material Point Method (MPM), a versatile and powerful meshless method for carrying out continuum-level simulations. We have utilized MPM within the Uintah framework in multiscale simulations of composite materials, primarly energetic composites comprised of energetic organic crystallites and polymer binders (see our Scientific Research link for more detail).

An implementation of MPM within the Uintah computational framework is available free of charge. WMI provides consultation services for those wishing to customize MPM to their particular research needs, partnership and collaboration opportunities for those wishing to team with WMI and take advantage of our multiscale materials modeling capababilities, and training services for those wishing to acquire on-site modeling capabilities utilizing MPM/Uintah. Below is a brief description of MPM and Uintah.

MPM and Uintah

Uintah is a set of software components and libraries that facilitate the solution of partial differential equations on structured adaptive mesh refinement grids using hundreds to thousands of processors. Uintah is the product of a ten year partnership with the Department of Energy's ACS program through the University of Utah's Center for Simulation of Accidental Fires and Explosions. Uintah is open-source software licensed under the MIT license.
