A unique feature is the interactive graphics display of the element assembly process for the mesh being prepared.
FELIPE is particularly suited for educational purposes, but can also be used commercially for civil and mechanical engineering analyses. Because the pre- and post-processors are independent from the "main engine" modules - and the latter are provided in source code - new "main engines" can be created to solve individual problems. As input to and output from the "main engines" is purely via formatted ANSI data files, "main engines" can even be written in another programming language!
August 2010: FELIPE is now Freeware! From this site you can obtain a free download of the package.
No supporting software is required, other than a Fortran compiler if you wish to modify and recompile the "main engines". (Salford FTN77 and FTN95 Personal Edition are free Fortran77 and Fortran95 compilers).
