CascadesDB is a database of molecular dynamics simulations of collision cascades, developed by the International Atomic Energy Agency. The project was initiated by the 5th meeting of the IAEA's Code Centres Network in November 2017 to enhance the usage and long-term curation of collisional cascade simulations for the analysis and prediction of radiation damage in materials for fusion and fission applications.
The development and maintenance of CascadesDB is overseen by an international scientific committee with the following membership:
To contribute data to CascadesDB, please contact Christian Hill. Simulation data should consist of archives of plain-text xyz files along with optional supplementary files such as simulation code input files. Such archives may contain several simulations differing only in the PKA recoil direction or initial lattice thermalization. Metadata, as described in the documentation may be provided in XML or plain-text format.
