Open source software for materials and process modeling Academic Article uri icon


  • Though open source engineering analysis tools have not been widely deployed, several of them have recently reached a point of maturity and usability in industry. This article focuses on the use of open source tools for modeling of materials and materials processes in particular. After defining open source software, it presents two case studies, surveys open source tools aimed at modeling of materials behavior and processes at multiple length and time scales, and discusses future prospects and application areas for open source tools.
