The DL_POLY Molecular Dynamics Package


DL POLY workshop

Date: Thursday 29th November 2007

Venue: VMD Room, CSED, STFC Daresbury Laboratory, Daresbury Warrington WA4 4AD, Cheshire

General Information

DL_POLY is a general purpose molecular dynamics simulation package continually developed at Daresbury Laboratory by W. Smith and I.T. Todorov under the auspices of EPSRC and NERC in support of CCP5. It can be used to simulate a wide variety of molecular systems including simple liquids, ionic liquids and solids, small polar and non-polar molecular systems, bio- and synthetic polymers, ionic polymers and glasses solutions, simple metals and alloys. (Molecular Simulation, 28 (2002), pp 385)

Molecular dynamics is a special technique of molecular modelling, which is now a common tool used by researchers in a wide range of scientific disciplines. DL_POLY is one of these especially targeting and supporting Chemistry, Physics and Biochemistry communities within the UK and worldwide. DL_POLY strengths lie within its:
