In early December we added a visualisation of the most heavily used application codes to the ARCHER website. At the moment it only shows data for the current month, but we've been recording the data since the ARCHER service began back in 2013 (table below).

'CP2K-UK' is a new project starting shortly at EPCC, aiming to nurture the growth of a self-sustaining user and developer community around the CP2K materials science code here in the UK. I have been working on CP2K for nearly 5 years now thanks to a series of HECToR dCSE and PRACE projects, so it is great to get a chance to work on some of the more fundamental issues around usability and sustainability of the code, thanks to success in the EPSRC 'Software for the Future' call.

Materials science - understanding how the microscopic structure of matter gives rise to macroscopic properties of materials - is one of EPSRC's key research areas, with applications in fields as diverse as energy storage, electronics, fabrics and nanotechnology. EPCC helps develop a number of important simulation codes in this area such as CP2K, GROMACS, and in this project GULP, the General Utility Lattice Program.
