[SciPy-Dev] ANN: SfePy 2010.1
Mon Mar 1 11:20:36 CST 2010
I am pleased to announce release 2010.1 of SfePy.
SfePy (simple finite elements in Python) is a software for solving systems of
coupled partial differential equations by the finite element method. The code
is based on NumPy and SciPy packages. It is distributed under the new BSD license.

Contributors to this release: Vladimír Lukeš, Logan Sorenson.
Highlights of this release
- new sphinx-based documentation
- refactoring of base functions (polynomial spaces) and element geometry
- interpolation between different meshes
- terms for describing perfusion and active fibres in the total Lagrangian
formulation (applicable, for example, to active muscle tissue models)
Apart from many bug-fixes, let us mention:
- data probing:
- automatic refinement of probe points, speed-up
- postprocessing and visualization:
- VTK source construction for any format supported by MeshIO classes:
- this means displaying meshes in formats Mayavi knows nothing about
- graphical logging:
- support logging to a text file, vertical line plot, allow several Log
- new examples:
- application of the theory of homogenization to elasticity
- perfusion, active fibres
- new tests and many new terms
