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.
11-Sep-2017 kim-api-v1.9.0 released — new "collections management" utility to install/remove KIM models
The KIM development team is pleased to announce the release of version 1.9.0 of the KIM application programming interface (API). By conforming to this API, an atomistic simulation code will seamlessly work with any KIM-compliant interatomic model written in any supported language. This release includes dramatic simplifications to the build sysem including a new `collections-management` user utility to help install and manage models and model drivers.
