"Winner of 2014 R&D 100 Award, an international competition that recognizes the 100 most technologically significant products introduced into the marketplace over the past year by R&D Magazine."
The Multiphysics Object Oriented Simulation Environment (MOOSE) is an open source framework aiding in the development of scientific simulation tools widely utilized for materials studies at the engineering and mesoscales. MOOSE is open source and freely available and is already being used by industry, national laboratories, and universities across the world. This tutorial will cover everything necessary to utilize MOOSE and its modules in the creation of new materials applications, and will be valuable for any student, scientist, or engineer interested in creating scientific simulation tools for materials related applications.

For more information on MOOSE, please see:
Workshop Outline
  1. Overview of the MOOSE framework and C++
  2. How to create a MOOSE-based simulation tool
  3. Solving Mechanics Problems in MOOSE
  4. Developing Phase Field Models with MOOSE
Cody Permann Cody Permann is a member of Idaho National Laboratory’s Modeling and Simulation Department and is the current lead for the MOOSE team. He has worked on the code for six years. He specializes in high-performance computing algorithms, parallelization and threading. He has worked on implementing a novel algorithm for remapping grains in a finite element simulation utilizing the MOOSE framework.
Michael R. Tonks Ph.D., is the Computational Microstructure Science Group lead at Idaho National Laboratory. He has pioneered the use of the MOOSE framework to model the coevolution of microstructure and properties at the mesoscale. He has also used the MOOSE framework for multiscale modeling, coupling from the atomistic to the mesoscale, and the mesoscale to the engineering scale.
Stephen R. Novascone, Ph.D., is a member of the BISON team in the Fuels Modeling and Simulation Department at Idaho National Laboratory. He has been modeling mechanical behavior at the engineering scale for more than 10 years and has been using the MOOSE framework for four years.
