Full description Elmer includes physical models of fluid dyElmer includes physical models of fluid dynamics, structural mechanics, electromagnetics and heat transfer. These are described by partial differential equations which Elmer solves by the Finite Element Method (FEM). Elmer comprises of several different parts: The geometry, boundary conditions and physical models are defined in ElmerFront. The resulting problem definition is solved by ElmerSolver. Finally the results are visualized by ElmerPost. Additionally a utility ElmerGrid may be used for simple mesh manipulation. The different parts of Elmer software may also be used independently. The strongest of the components is ElmerSolver which includes many sophisticated features. For pre- and postprosessing the users may find also other alternatives. The software runs on unix and windows platforms and can be compiled on a large variety of compilers. The solver can also be used in parallel mode on platforms that support MPI.<\p>e on platforms that support MPI.<\p>
