07 Apr 2014 - 07 Apr 2014

Date: 7 April 2014, Monday
Time: 9 am  – 5 pm
Venue: Level 17, Charles Babbage Room, 1 Fusionopolis Way, Connexis South, Singapore 138632

Speaker: Dr Hannes Schweiger, Senior Scientist, Materials Design Inc

The MedeA® software package predicts materials properties using simulations based on quantum mechanics, statistical thermodynamics, classical mechanics and electrodynamics as well as correlation methods involving empirical data.

Integration of advanced computational approaches based on density functional theory and forcefield methods with comprehensive experimental databases provides high predictive power.

MedeA® is designed for materials engineers and scientists who want rapid and reliable answers for a range of materials issues related to application areas such as electrical power generation, automotive applications, energy storage, alloy design, microelectronics, the chemical industry and petrochemicals.

Academic researchers rely on MedeA® for interpretation of experimental data, gaining deep understanding of materials properties, and as a basis for research in computational materials science. As such it also has unique value as tool for learning and teaching.


Dr Hannes Schweiger, is the Senior Scientist, Director of Support at Materials Design Inc. He holds a Ph.D. in physics (computational materials science) from University of Vienna. He has been working with VASP and FLAPW, followed by research positions at the French Petroleum Institute (IFP energies nouvelles), ISMANS (Le Mans, France), and Case Western Research University (USA) working on heterogeneous catalysis and fuel cells.

In addition to his scientific work, Dr Hannes Schweiger is adept in making sure that MedeA installs on various platforms and integrates with queuing systems. Proud of working with outstanding scientific colleagues, he is responsible for creating documentation and training workshops for the whole suite of programs integrated in MedeA, from DFT to atomistic simulations of millions of atoms.

During the presentation and workshop on 7th April, he will introduce the MedeA software package to the audience on how the software can help to predict the physical and chemical materials properties.
