elastic Build Status

Elastic is a simple yet efficient finite element solver for linear elasticity problems in two and three dimensions.

Installation

  1. you will need to install the ISCD Commons Library on your system. Please refer to the instructions provided on the ICS Commons Library page in order to install this library.

  2. download the zip archive of LinearElasticity or clone this repository:

    git clone https://github.com/ISCDtoolbox/LinearElasticity.git

    navigate to the downloaded directory:

    cd LinearElasticity

    then create build directory and create Makefile

    mkdir build
    cd build
    cmake ..
    make
    make install
    

Usage

After compiling elastic as described above, you should have an executable file in your $HOME/bin directory. If your PATH variable is correctly set to this directory, elastic can be called with the following syntax:

usage: elastic [+/-v | -h] [-n nit] [-r res] [-t typ] source_file[.mesh] [-p param_file[.elas]] [-s data_file[.sol]] [-o output_file[.sol]]

The square braces indicate optional arguments. Some commands have flags, some others do not.

The options and flags are:

--help       show the syntax and exit.
--version    show the version and date of release and exit.

-n nit       number of iterations max for convergence 
-r res       value of the residual (Krylov space) for convergence
-t typ       specify the type of FE space: 1: P1, 2: P2
-v           suppress any message (for use with function call).
+v           increase the verbosity level for output.

source_file.mesh      name of the mesh file
param_file            name of file containing elasticity parameters
data_file.sol         name of file containing the initial solution or boundary conditions
output_file.sol       name of the output file (displacement field)

A full description of all parameters and options that can be specified in the command line or in a parameter file [file.elas] can be found in the project wiki.

Quickstart

You can test the installation and look at examples by entering the demos directory and running the program:

cd demos/2d
elastic carre.mesh                # or equivalently:  elastic carre.mesh -p carre.elas -o carre.sol

that will produce an output that will look like:
