The latest release of RheoCube comes with major improvements. These span every aspect of the product, from the look and feel to improved workflows in model validation cases, and exciting new capabilities, such as Molecular Analysis.
A new design has been applied to the project card view, facilitating overview and access to the most relevant information within a project. The optimization of new workflows now helps to simplify input logic, and there's a new option to copy and transfer all ingredients from one project to another in one bulk export.
Another new feature is the introduction of enforced pre-processing, which makes it possible to re-generate instances to get different results for a card. This is especially useful for the particle workflow.
Molecule analysis widget
A widget for molecule analysis has been added. You can now plot molecule size and trajectory metrics, analyze the spatial distribution of molecules, and compute the diffusion constant of molecules.
The list of changes goes on, but we also want to highlight one in particular, that relates to the authentic scientific rigour applied to every step of RheoCube's development - Model Validation Cases.
Model Validation Cases
For RheoCube to have added value in research and development, the simulation results should be accurate, predictive and representative of what you will find should you do the same in the laboratory. Therefore, every simulation model used within RheoCube is put to the test by means of validation cases.
This is done by choosing well established theories and/or well known experimental systems and making sure that the simulation models are able to capture the same behavior. At first qualitatively in showing correct trends and dependencies, but ultimately quantitatively resulting in the same values for measurable properties. The validation cases are chosen to represent well known behaviors in different types of complex fluids as well as in basic fluid systems.
The results of these validation cases are now also reported in the RheoCube manual. An overview of the current validation cases and their status is available as well as links to a description and proof of validation for each case.
