ae108: a scalable variational framework for FEA#


ae108 is a scalable (parallel) C++ framework for computational solid mechanics simulations using a variational approach, primarily focusing on the Finite Element Analysis (FEA). See the Computational Solid Mechanics lecture notes for more information about the approach that is used. The code is developed by the Mechanics & Materials Lab at ETH Zurich.


ae108 is a research library. The libary, as well as this documentation, is under active development. The contents are constantly expanding and may be subject to frequent changes. For the latest information, please refer to our GitLab.
