A Python interface to FEBio, facilitating optimization and general finite element scripting.
This project provides a Python interface to the finite element software package: FEBio (http://mrl.sci.utah.edu/software/febio). Currently the code interacts with FEBio indirectly, through two main interfaces: (1) XML model specification, and (2) results file parsing. While PyFEBio supports simple geometric modeling, it is expected that users will create more complicated FE meshes elsewhere. PyFEBio also facilitates: (i) inverse FEA for material parameter computation, and (ii) probabilistic simulation and evaluation.
