New BETA version of Reptate (Release 0.9.3 – 20180719)

A new beta version of Reptate has been released. The new features are:

– New App: to handle and fit TTS shift factors

– Save all views data to a text file
– Shifting of files; handling and saving shift parameters
– Nicer HTML output in Theory and Tools
– Allow calculations and fits to be stopped
– Developer docs: Callback functions
– Zoom (right button and wheel; zoom in and zoom out) and Pan (middle button)

New paper in Macromolecules

A new article has just appeared in Macromolecules:

M. Tassieri, J. Ramirez, N.Ch. Karayiannis, S.K. Sukumaran and Y. Masubuchi, "i-Rheo GT: Transforming the time-dependent shear relaxation modulus of materials into their frequency-dependent complex shear modulus without artefacts", Macromolecules Article ASAP (2018)

In the paper, done in collaboration with Drs. Tassieri, Karayiannis, Sukumaran and Masubuchi, we present a new analytical tool for educing the frequency-dependent complex shear modulus of materials from computer-aided numerical simulations of their time-dependent shear relaxation modulus, without the need of preconceived models.

The tool can be downloaded from Manlio Tassieri's site. In addition, it has been implemented as a new View in RepTate.
