Welcome to the Knowledgebase of Interatomic Models!
OpenKIM is an online framework for making molecular simulations
reliable, reproducible, and portable. Computer implementations of interatomic
models are archived in OpenKIM, verified for coding integrity, and tested by
computing their predictions for a variety of material properties.
Models conforming to the KIM
application programming interface (API)
work seamlessly with major simulation codes that have adopted the
KIM API standard.
Explore the predictions of interatomic models for different material properties.
27-Jun-2018 Three "OpenKIM Coding Sprints" to be held this summer
Three "Coding Sprints" funded by the IMA will be held this summer at the University of Minnesota to develop software related to the KIM project. KIM Team members will work with external experts on focused programming projects.
26-Jun-2018 kim-api-v2.0.0-beta.0 released
The KIM development team is pleased to announce the release of version 2.0.0-beta.0 of the KIM API package. The v2 package has been completely rewritten, offering a simpler interface with many improvements and new features. See the documentation
