Elmer is a computational tool for multi-physics problems that has been developed in collaboration with Finnish universities, research laboratories and industry. It includes physical models of fluid dynamics, structural mechanics, electromagnetics, and heat transfer. These are described by partial differential equations which are solved by the Finite Element Method (FEM). It comprises of several different parts. The geometry, boundary conditions and physical models are defined in ElmerFront. The resulting problem definition is solved by ElmerSolver. Results are the visualized by ElmerPost. An ElmerGrid utility may be used for simple mesh manipulation.
