The MODULEF finite element library contains about 3000 procedures written in Fortran 77. These procedures were designed with the utmost concern for software portability.

The following capabilities are available in the MODULEF library:

  • Automatic generation and modification of two- and three-dimensional meshes.
  • Specification of material characteristics or external forces by sub-domain or boundary section.
  • Choice of type of finite element method, for example, conforming, non-conforming, hybrid, or mixed.
  • The finite element library contains about 36 elements for thermal analysis and about 61 elements for elasticity for isotropic and anisotropic materials.
  • Linear systems can be solved using direct or iterative methods.
  • Solution methods for eigenproblems include inverse iteration, subspace iteration, Lanczos and QR methods.
  • The solution of time-dependent thermal problems and dynamic problems by classical multi-step, Gear multistep predictor-corrector, or 3rd - order semi implicit Runga-Kutta
  • Non-linear elasticity.
  • Solution of variational inequalities subject to bounded constraints by relaxation and complementarity.
  • Solution of the Dirichlet problem for a biharmonic operator by a mixed finite element method of order 1 or 2.
