'OOF' helps materials scientists calculate macroscopic properties from images of real or simulated microstructures. It consists of two cooperating parts: 'ppm2oof' and 'oof'. 'ppm2oof' reads images in the ppm (Portable Pixel Map) format and assigns material properties to features in the image. 'oof' conducts virtual experiments on the data structures created by ppm2oof to determine the macroscopic properties of the microstructure. There are now two separate versions of OOF available. The original version solves elasticity problems. The new thermal version solves elasticity and thermal diffusion problems. Plans are to include eventually include electric and magnetic field calculations as well.
