SIFEL - SImple Finite ELements
This page contains links to the programs used for FE mesh preparation, preprocessing of the input files and result postprocessing.
Mesh generators, mesh editing tools
T3D mesh generator is a powerful mesh generator capable to discretize complex 3D domains into triangular and tetrahedral meshes of high quality.
MeshEditor - graphical tool for the displaying of FE meshes in SIFEL or GiD formats. There is possibility to select group of nodes, edges, surfaces and elements, assign them property number that can be referred in the MEFEL and TRFEL text preprocessors
MESHDECOMP is a tool used for the mesh partitioning.
CONVERTOR converts mesh files among the T3D, SIFEL and GiD formats.
CONNECTMESHES is used for the connection of several meshes into one mesh with the glued numbering.
GENBRIDGE generates input file of the bridge model for T3D mesh generator.
Our short manual for T3D - several tips how to work with T3D mesh generator (only in Czech)
Pre and Post Processing
GiD - The Personal Pre and Post Processor from CIMNE. All SIFEL modules can export results in the GiD format for the postprocessing. There is also beta version of SIFEL GiD preprocessor module for the input file preparation.
- Download SIFEL module here
- Unpack downloaded zip file
- Copy whole unpacked directory into GiD-directory /Gid/problemtypes
- Open GiD and in TopMenu chose option Data->Problem type->SIFEL->METR
OpenDX is a uniquely powerful, full-featured software package for the visualization of scientific, engineering and analytical data.
