Coupled Field Simulation - Finite Elements for multi-physics

CFS++ (coupled field simulation) is a finite element-based multi-physics modelling and simulation tool. This research-driven simulation tool features elaborate techniques for various physical fields. The modelling strategy focuses on physical fields and their respective couplings. Strong data exchange interfaces are provided to use third-party pre- and post-processing libraries. The XML-based modelling language is easy to handle and well described by application examples.

For the commercial version see | SIMetris.
