We introduce a software tool to simulate multiscale models: the Multiscale Coupling Library and Environment 2 (MUSCLE 2). MUSCLE 2 is a component-based modeling tool inspired by the multiscale modeling and simulation framework, with an easy-to-use API which supports Java, C++, C, and Fortran. We present MUSCLE 2's runtime features, such as its distributed computing capabilities, and its benefits to multiscale modelers. We also describe two multiscale models that use MUSCLE 2 to do distributed multiscale computing: an in-stent restenosis and a canal system model. We conclude that MUSCLE 2 is a notable improvement over the previous version of MUSCLE, and that it allows users to more flexibly deploy simulations of multiscale models, while improving their performance.
