🧮 suanPan is a finite element method (FEM) simulation platform for applications in solid mechanics, civil/structural/seismic engineering, etc. The name suanPan (in some places such as suffix also it is abbreviated as suPan) comes from the term Suan Pan (算盤), which is Chinese abacus. suanPan is written in high quality C++ code and is targeted to provide an efficient, concise and reliable FEM simulation platform.
OOFEM is free finite element code with object oriented architecture for solving mechanical, transport and fluid mechanics problems that operates on various platforms. The aim of this project is to develop efficient and robust tool for FEM computations as well as to provide modular and extensible environment for future development.
