OOF: Finite Element Analysis of Microstructures

The OOF software provides a finite-element modeling capability to users in the field of materials science. It encapsulates advanced numerical techniques, making sophisticated computational capabilities available to materials science users who are not themselves computational experts.


OOF is useful both directly, for the characterization of complex microstructures, and indirectly, through parametric studies, for users who wish to design new materials or optimize microstructures for maximum materials performance.
