Finite Element Software Public Domain Free Downloads

NIST Modelling Programs Download
The Computational Materials Science of Concrete Laboratory at the National Institute of Standards and Technology have developed a number of finite element / finite difference programs applied to composite material models.
MODULEF Download
A modular FE library which can be installed on workstations, mainframes and supercomputers. The facilities include 2D and 3D mesh generation and visualisation, and a choice of solution methods (direct and iterative). There is an interactive mode and source code is available.
MODFE Download
A two-dimensional FE program for groundwater flow under saturated conditions. Will run in DOS. Source code is available. Many other groundwater flow programs are obtainable from this ftp site including the well-known MODFLOW and SUTRA.
LUGR Download
Adaptive grid solvers for systems of (time-dependent) pdes in 2D and 3D. VLUGR, vectorised local uniform grid refinement, can be used with advantage when the solutions exhibit sharp gradients in space and time. The code is written in Fortran 77 and has been installed on an SGI work station.
HMD Modeling Download
HMD is a finite element solver compatible with GMSH, GMV, and VIS5D+, freely available for download under the GNU Public. Platform: Binaries are available Linux and Win32. The linux binary will run on linux kernel 2.2.13 and glibc 2.1.2 and higher. The win32 version uses cygwin. The cygwin DLL is included in the distribution. The program includes nD applications to the Laplace, Poisson and Helmholtz equations. Installation instructions and documentation are included with the package.
FEMOctave Download
This is a very simple FEM package for Octave. It solves second order differential equations in two variables, using first order elements.
Code Aster Download
Code_Aster is a general purpose finite element code released under the GNU General Public License. Platforms: Solaris, HP-UX, IRIX, Windows NT. Available from the Code ASTER web site. (Note: this web site is in French, look for ``Telechargement'' for download area.) Requires Python and TCL to install, as well as a Fortran compiler.
ALADDIN Download
ALADDIN is a computational toolkit for matrices. ALADDIN views Finite Element Analysis as a specialised matrix computation. ALADDIN is being developed at the Institute for Systems Research, University of Maryland, College Park, USA, under the financial sponsorship of the Federal Highway Administration and the National Science Foundation. ALADDIN includes a mesh generation package. The ALADDIN finite element library currently comprises elements for plane stress/strain, 2D beam/column analysis, 3D truss analysis, DKQ plate analysis, and a variety of shell finite elements. ALADDIN has been tested on a SUN SPARCstation, DECstation 5000, and IBM RS/6000.
