The Ultrarelativistic Quantum Molecular Dynamics model is a microscopic model used to simulate (ultra)relativistic heavy ion collisons in the energy range from Bevalac and SIS up to AGS, SPS and RHIC. Main goals are to gain understanding about the following physical phenomena within a single transport model:

UrQMD has also been used as a component of various hybrid transport approaches, e.g.
