Abstract: One of the challenges in polymer physics is to predict the structure and properties of polymeric materials from their microstructures and processing conditions by integrating various theories and simulation methods. We have been involved in such a challenge through a governmental project involving computational modeling of polymeric materials. This article discusses how we tackled the challenge and describes the system we developed.
