Read: What’s New in Materials Studio

Materials Studio is a complete modeling and simulation environment designed to allow researchers in materials science and chemistry to predict and understand the relationships of a material’s atomic and molecular structure with its properties and behavior. Using Materials Studio, researchers in many industries are engineering better performing materials of all types, including pharmaceuticals, catalysts, polymers and composites, metals and alloys, batteries and fuel cells, and more.

With Materials Studio you can:

Accelerate Innovation Materials Studio enables materials scientists and research teams to develop new, better performing, and more cost effective materials faster and more efficiently than with test and experimentation alone.

Reduce Costs: Materials Studio customers have indicated a reduction of up to 10 times in the number of experiments required to introduce a new material.

Improve Efficiency:  Automate repetitive or tedious modeling tasks by creating reusable modeling and simulation protocols.

Collaborate:  Capture & share expert knowledge and methods to make computational science more consistent across organizational and geographic boundaries.

Solve Your Most Difficult Problems: BIOVIA’s staff of expert scientists assures timely support and expertise to help solve even the most challenging problems in materials science.

Materials Studio includes a graphical user environment—Materials Studio Visualizer— in which researchers can construct, manipulate and view models of molecules, crystalline materials, surfaces, polymers, and mesoscale structures. Materials Studio Visualizer is complemented by a complete set of solution methods including quantum, atomistic (or “classical”), mesoscale, and statistical that enable researchers to evaluate materials at various particle sizes and time scales. It also includes tools for evaluating crystal structure and crystal growth.

System Requirements for Materials Studio

Materials Studio Integration with Pipeline Pilot
and the BIOVIA Foundation

Materials Studio is integrated with BIOVIA’s open, scalable, and scientifically aware platform, making it the industry’s most compelling value in materials modeling and simulation. Expert scientists can encapsulate and automate best practices in reusable “protocols” using Pipeline Pilot and its scientific collections, including the Materials Studio Collection, and then deploy computational science to the global enterprise through BIOVIA Foundation. This also enables integration of 3rd party or in-house applications to extend the breadth and depth of science supported by Materials Studio.
