Most of the numerical algorithms developed in the REO team have been implemented in:

    • LifeV

      LifeV is a finite element library which results from a collaboration between CMCS (EPFL, Switzerland), MOX (Politecnico di Milano in Italy), Emory University in the U.S.A and the REO project-team. Its development started in 2000. The code is free and available on under LGPL license.

    • Mistral

      Mistral stands for “MagnetohydrodynamIcS for ALuminium electrolysis”. It is a finite element code developed in REO project-team and in CERMICS (Ecole des Ponts). It implements the incompressible magnetohydrodynamics equations on moving domains. It has also been used for fluid-solid interaction problems, free surface flows, and bi-fluid flows with special boundary conditions to handle the moving contact line. It is a proprietary software that was used in particular by Aluminium Pechiney and ALCAN.

    • FELiScE

      FELiScE stands for “Finite Elements for LIfe SCiences and Engineering” – is a new finite element code which the MACS and REO project-teams have decided to jointly develop in order to build up on their respective experiences concerning finite element simulations. One specific objective of this code is to provide in a unified software environment all the state-of-the-art tools needed to perform simulations of the complex cardiovascular models considered in the two teams – namely involving fluid and solid mechanics, electrophysiology, and the various associated coupling phenomena. FELiScE is written in C++, based on the Petsc library and may be later released as an opensource library. The FELiScE project started in 2010. It already has more than 10 contributors and about 30 users, mainly at INRIA, Université P & M Curie (Paris 6), Université Paris-Sud (Paris 11), Université Technologique de Compiègne (UTC), Weierstrass Institute (WIAS, Berlin) and Université Paris Descartes (Paris 5).
