I got a question how to go about setting up a coupled Thermal-
problem, where the heating comes from the Joule heating of a
conductive part. The properties are temperature dependent. Is there
PS! Robert, We met at EuroScipy and I only now got around to join the
I am pleased to announce the release of SfePy 2008.4.
SfePy (simple finite elements in Python) is a finite element analysis
software based primarily on Numpy and SciPy.

- framework for running parametric studies
- greatly improved support for time-dependent problems
- time derivatives of variables as term arguments
- initial conditions via ics, ic_<number> keywords
- live plotting using multiprocessing module
- type of term arguments determined fully at run-time
- new terms, namely piezo-coupling
- enhanced acoustic band gaps code
- dispersion analysis (polarization angle calculation)
- applied load tensor computation
- phase velocity computation for periodic perforated media with empty
- improved schroedinger.py
- plotting DFT iterations

we are going to replace the current rather ad-hoc numbering of sfepy
releases to something more reasonable. To take part in the discussion,
post a comment at , please.
A new release (with some nice new functionality) is imminent - just the
numbering should be resolved.
