Rheolef: a C++ finite element library for solving PDE

Version     : 6.0
User's guide: http://ljk.imag.fr/membres/Pierre.Saramito/rheolef/rheolef.pdf

Distibution: sources and debian packages

Keywords: finite elements, numerical simulation, partial derivative
equations,
C++, meshes, graphics

Rheolef is a programming environment that serves as a convenient
laboratory for
computations involving finite element methods (FEM) for solving
partial
differential equations (PDE). Rheolef is both a C++ library and a set
of
commands for unix shell programming, providing algorithms and data
structures.

* Algorithms refer to the most up-to-date ones: preconditioned sparse
solvers
for linear systems, incompressible elasticity, Stokes and Navier-
Stokes flows,
characteristic method for convection dominated heat problems, etc.
Also
nonlinear generic algorithms such as fixed point and damped Newton
methods.

* Data structures fit the standard variational formulation concept:
spaces,
discrete fields, bilinear forms are C++ types for variables, that
can be
combined in any expressions, as you write it on the paper.

Combined together, as a Lego game, these bricks allows the user to
solve most
complex nonlinear problems. The concision and readability of codes
written
with Rheolef is certainly a major keypoint of this environment.

Main features

* [NEW] Massively distributed memory finite element environment, based
on MPI.
* [NEW] High-order polynomial approximation.
* Poisson problems in dimension d=1,2,3.
* Stokes problems (d=2,3), with Taylor-Hood or stabilized P1 bubble-P1
elements.
* linear elasticity (d=1,2,3), including the incompressible case.
* characteristic method for time-dependent problems:
transport, convection-difusion, and Navier-Stokes equations.
* input and output in various file format for meshes generators and
numerical
data visualization systems.

* axisymetric problems.
* multi-regions and non-constant coefficients.
* nonlinear problems with either fixed-point algorithms or a provided
generic
damped Newton solver.
* 3d stereo visualization

Both reference manual and users guide are available.
