A F E M - FEM Code
AFEMu works under Linux, GUI works under X Window System only ;-). Tested on Slackware 8.0, 8.1, RedHat 6.2, Debian (probably 2.x - GUI untested here). Solver works under IRIX 6.5 (SGI Indy ;-) and Window$ 2k (compiled using Cygwinu), GUI is untested under W2k but works under IRIX.
Window$ support (people often ask me for this) is limited because:
Supported are platforms available to author.
Other platforms (Sparc, Cray,...) are not supported because I have no acces to these machines. If you have one and you don't want it any more, send me a mail, please ;-).
Data are stored in HDF5 format (using HDF5 library) and can be red on any platform supported by library . So you can compute data on Cray (if you have Cray) and postprocessed on (for example) SGI workstation (if you have it ;-).
For small (read: normal civil eng.) linear problems (beams, frames etc.)
with 64 MiB RAM (or something like SGI Indy/100MHz, 64 MiB RAM)
is an adequate machine. For data postprocessing (even from huge nonlinear solutions)
the same machines are adequate, too
(but more memory may make your life better ;-).
If you have a question, please send e-mail to me.
