Multiscale simulations are an essential computational method in a range of research disciplines, and provide unprecedented levels of scientific insight at a tractable cost in terms of effort and compute resources. To provide this, we need such simulations to produce results that are both robust and actionable. The VECMA toolkit (VECMAtk), which is officially released in conjunction with the present paper, establishes a platform to achieve this by exposing patterns for verification, validation and uncertainty quantification (VVUQ). These patterns can be combined to capture complex scenarios, applied to applications in disparate domains, and used to run multiscale simulations on any desktop, cluster or supercomputing platform.
