MechSys is a programming library written in C++ as well as a set of programs for the simulation of mechanical systems. The term mechanical systems refers here to those based on the continuum mechanics and discrete mechanics.
MechSys can be used directly in C++ programs or by calling a set of Python commands. Both methods can be used for the setting up and execution of simulations rendering a powerful simulation environment. This is due to the 'scripting' nature of the programming strategy adopted.
MechSys also includes the following programs that can be run using the friendly graphical interface Blender:
-- MechSys/FEM (Finite Element Method): numerical solution of 2D and 3D problems, including static equilibrium and dynamics, transient diffusion such as seepage (water flow through porous media) and heat transfer;
-- MechSys/DEM (Discrete Element Method): simulation of discrete systems and granular matter
-- MechSys/MPM (Material Point Method): solution of static equilibrium (continuum) and dynamics with large deformation
