This site was formed and is maintained by researchers in the Vancouver, Canada area. Our purpose is to
develop expertise in the use of freeware finite element method packages.
The goal is to become familiar with the installation and use of one or several freeware finite element packages for computing "standard" types of problems and gain enough insight that the packages could be modified to compute more complicated problems. This skill would be useful in academic research as well as to industry.
Follow the menu links above to see the packages under consideration and the test problems we are considering.
