PFHub: The Phase-Field Community Hub



Daniel Wheeler, Trevor Keller, Jonathan E. Guyer, James A. Warren, Stephen DeWitt, Andrea Jokisaari, Daniel Schwen, Larry Aagesen, Olle Heinonen, Michael Tonks, Peter Voorhees


An online portal provides a valuable space for scientific communities to summarize a shared challenge, collect attempts at a solution, and present a quantitative comparison of past attempts in a compelling way. An exemplar of such a portal is μMAG. The reusable PFHub framework leverages existing online services to build a static portal website that is considerably easier to deploy and maintain without sacrificing content or scope. The first deployment of the PFHub framework supports phase-field practitioners and code developers participating in an effort to improve quality assurance for phase-field codes.
