    FeatFlow (Finite Element Analysis Toolbox for Flow) is a finite element CFD Fortran code using a very efficient FEM discretization together with a geometric multigrid approach for solving linear systems. This results in a very fast and computationally efficient solver, typically yielding a magnitude or more of speedup compared commercially available solvers. FeatFlow can be used from MATLAB with the FEATool Multiphysics GUI interface.

  • Code_Aster for Windows

    Code_Aster is a free software for numerical simulation in structural mechanics, developed mainly by the “Advanced Mechanical Analysis” department of EDF‘s research and development department (ERMES, ElectRo – MEchanics Studies). Since Code_Aster is provided for Linux environment only, we chose to rebuild it from sources to share its Windows binaries as many users were asking on the forum.
