Logo PadFEM is an OO environment supporting and implementing parallel adaptive finite element simulations in 2D (and soon in 3D). PadFEM includes GUI's, mesh generators, partitioning algorithms, FE-formulations for Poisson- and Navier-Stokes-Problems, different solvers based on domain decomposition, error estimators, mesh refinement algorithms, and dynamic load balancers. PadFEM is designed under the concept of Frames allowing an easy extension to other problems and the inclusion of further modules.
