The features of OCTA (Open Computational Tool for Advanced material technology) are explained. OCTA has been developed as a simulation engine platform and several types of simulation engines especially for polymeric materials have been implemented on OCTA. The self-consistent field (SCF) theory of polymers is also explained. This theory is implemented in one of OCTA' s simulation engine named SUSHI (simulation utilities for soft and hard interfaces). Deformations of a core shell type droplet on a wall are demonstrated with SUSHI. The wetting phenomena of the droplet on the wall are confirmed.
