This talk summarizes how the the online simulation tool, GUI for the Surface Evolver, was created as well as how it will impact research in polycrystalline grain growth. Polycrystalline grains have surface energies and tensions associated with them that cause grain boundaries to move (grow). By creating a simulation tool to simplify the process of using the Surface Evolver by Ken Brakke, this can improve research into why and how boundaries change, thus leading to future discoveries in engineered materials.
