MedeA’s Property Modules

Get the most out of MedeA’s powerful Compute Engines by using MedeA’s Property Modules, graphical workflows and pre-configured computational protocols. Save time and effort mastering the often intricate details of computational property prediction. A number of modules are available to facilitate sophisticated modeling, analysis, and property prediction for specific materials. These work in conjunction with one or more of the Compute Engines (MedeA VASP, MedeA Gaussian, MedeA MOPAC, MedeA GIBBS and MedeA LAMMPS).


MedeA MT

MedeA MT efficiently calculates in a fully automatic manner elastic, mechanical and thermodynamic properties of crystalline, polycrystalline, and amorphous materials. The module is applicable to metals, semiconductors, ceramics, glasses, polymers, and thermosets, making use of VASP, LAMMPS or MOPAC as computational engines.
