Hello! I am an undergraduate researcher who has re-designed a molecular dynamics simulation code to run through BOINC. This project simulates the formation of Bulk Metallic Glass, a material stronger than most steels and as elastic as most polymers. Bulk metallic glasses have applications in everything from damage-resistant smartphones to bio-compatible glucose monitors for diabetics. However, there exist challenges in designing optimal bulk metallic glasses and understanding the ways that their bulk properties relate to their micro-scale formation. This project, performed in collaboration with Yale University's O'Hern group, aims to gain greater fundamental understanding of these materials. I am seeking testers and volunteers to help with this computation.

The project URL is:
http://bmgathome.science/bmgathome/


At present, this project is only designed for Windows x64.

If you can point me to other places to seek testers, that would be greatly appreciated as well.

If you want to know more about the science, you can read our recent paper:

I had posted in your forums over 2 days ago that I CAN NOT GET THE x86 OR the x64 APP TO RUN on my Win 8.1 PC. I have a x86 app running (very s l o w) on my Vista PC.

Not sure why you say this is ONLY a x64 Windows app when your APPLICATION PAGE indicates there is x86 & x64 Windows apps available:
Windows (98 or later) running on an Intel x86-compatible CPU	1.00	30 Oct 2015, 4:24:37 UTC	4 GigaFLOPS
Microsoft Windows running on an AMD x86_64 or Intel EM64T CPU	1.00	22 Mar 2015, 0:10:53 UTC	7 GigaFLOPS


And the project's DOWNLOAD folder/Directory also confirms there are x86 Windows app:
BMGQ6_1.00_windows_intelx86.exe	2015-10-30 04:24	14K	 
BMGVoronoi_1.00_windows_intelx86.exe	2015-10-30 04:24	14K	 
bmgathome_1.00_windows_intelx86.exe	2015-10-30 04:24	39K	 
wrapper_26014_windows_intelx86.exe	2015-10-30 04:24	965K

Hi Dr Who Fan! Thanks for your reply. The x86 version is still in progress and I don't think it is working at the moment. I apologize for your trouble, I thought I had disabled the x86 version because of earlier problems during testing.

I will look into your problem and follow up with further information on the thread on the BMG@Home forums.
