Manchester Modelling Network

Multiscale modelling diagram

Our research themes

Modelling is a cross-cutting activity. One technique may have many applications and a single application may require many modelling methods. We thus give two lists – techniques and applications.


Quantum mechanics

  • Atoms and molecules
  • Condensed matter

Molecular simulation and statistical mechanics

Continuum theories

  • Continuum fluid dynamics
  • Smooth particle hydrodynamics
  • Solid mechanics

Industrial and social level modelling

  • Process integration
  • Resilient energy system modelling
  • Control
  • Sustainability

Statistical modelling and informatics

Atmospheric modelling



To tackle a grand challenge, on typically requires a variety of modelling techniques, operating across a wide range of length and time scales. Here we indicate how modelling in Manchester is being used for such applications.

Medicine and health

Energy and sustainability

Advanced materials
