Abstract The Hybrid Reverse Monte Carlo (HRMC) code models the atomic structure of materials via the use of a combination of constraints including experimental diffraction data and an empirical energy potential. In this version 2.1 update, an empirical potential for silicon-carbide has been added to the code along with an experimentally motivated constraint on the bond type fraction applicable to systems containing multiple elements.
