FEBio 1.2.0 Released

By David Rawlins

FEBio, Finite Elements for Biomechanics, has undergone some major revisions in the past year. Version 1.2.0 is now available for download at Here are some of the exciting new features:

- faster, multi-threaded linear solvers (Pardiso, SuperLU)

- contact improvements such as improved stability for large compression problems

- a new biphasic contact algorithm to simulate contact between two poroelastic materials

- new material models such as strain-dependant poroelasticity, Holmes-Mow elasticity, ...

As of this version, we will be distributing our test and examples problems, which illustrate how to setup particular finite element models in FEBio.

Also, a new release of PostView (version 1.3) is now available. The GUI was completely redesigned to provide easier and faster access to the model’s data and properties. A number of improvements were made to the visualization tools as well.

The MRL website has undergone some major changes. Be sure to check out the new galleries in FEBio, PreView and PostView. If you have registered in the past, you will need to re-register on the new site in order to download software.

We encourage you to report any problems or questions on the Software Forum:

We would really appreciate any feedback that you may have that would help us improve FEBio and make it the preferred finite element tool for computational biomechanics.

Kind Regards,

MRL Software Team
