Welcome to the libMesh wiki! The purpose of this resource is to promote collaboration between libMesh users. Specifically, this page is not intended to replace the mailing lists, which are the proper forum for detailed questions & discussions. This page should provide a basic knowledge base that can be used by both existing and new users and to demonstrate the capabilities of the library.


Contents

How to learn libmesh

The best way is to start with the tutorials and then browse the online libmesh documentation.

Documentation to libmesh is

Installation

Installation instructions with examples. Problems with installation (MPI, PETSC, SLEPC).

Image Gallery

Results from applications that use libMesh

Examples

The only public available applications written in libmesh, so that users can learn from them, are in the examples section of the main page and here.

[heat], [laplace], and [wave] equations.

Related software

  • http://www-unix.mcs.anl.gov/petsc/petsc-2 "PETSc is a suite of data structures and routines for the scalable (parallel) solution of scientific applications modeled by partial differential equations." libMesh uses a number of PETSc features to solve linear and nonlinear implicit systems on distributed memory parallel machines.
  • http://www.geuz.org/gmsh Gmsh is an automatic 3D finite element grid generator with post-processor. Its design goal is to provide a simple meshing tool for academic problems with parametric input and advanced visualization capabilities. libMesh supports both import from GMSH (including the definition of boundaries) and export for visualization.
  • http://laws.lanl.gov/XCM/gmv/GMVHome.html GMV is "an easy to use, 3-D scientific visualization tool designed to view simulation data from any type of structured or unstructured mesh." GMV is developed at Los Alamos National Labs and is freely available for a number of platforms. libMesh exports data in the GMV format, so if you are looking for a free visualization tool be sure to check GMV out.
  • http://developer.berlios.de/projects/feval/ FEVal is an easy to use tool to convert FE file formats, change and renumber meshes, and postprocess FE data. It is written in Python and requires scipy (http://www.scipy.org).
