In examples/large_deformation/hyperelastic.py a rotation by displacements is applied. By using a similar function the vectors defining the force couples could be defined for dw_surface_ltr (IMHO). Does it make sense?

What is the best way to apply a torque load to a model?

As analysis takes quite some time, it'll be helpful if there is a progress
bar or progressing % showing.
this feature will really help large problem.
is it possible to integrate this feature into sfepy???
FYI: conversion to cython is in progress, see . So far so good, but if any
cython expert is around and has a spare minute, I would appreciate a feedback.
I have started working on a script for generating something like the famous
matplotlib gallery for sfepy examples. The examples page  is already usable,
although there are some issues to solve, to name a few:
- failed examples produce no images, but there is still the link
- some directories need to be skipped
- latex version of the docs fails compiling without errors
- example docstrings are not included yet (need to add them to all examples first!)
Usage of the script on linux for those willing to try it:
cp -ra gallery/examples/ doc/
Due to some issues with offscreen rendering a window pop-ups when generating
the images - set it to "keep below others" if your window manager allows that
That's it. Comments, suggestions, improvements etc. welcome!
FYI: There is a new EasyToFix issue , so if anybody wants to help a bit
while improving his/her sphinx-fu, give it a shot. I am talking especially
about the ExampleUsingSalomeWithSfePy.
The plan is to slowly transition all documents to Sphinx, and put it to
sfepy.org. The google site will be used for issues, mailing lists, downloads
and wiki (for initial versions of various docs before putting them to the main
I try to model crack propagation in thin film with sfepy. I must
admit that I don't understand everything in the docs because my FEM
knowledge is mediocre at best, but my plan is the following:
1. I take the "Linear Elasticity" example as a starting point (2.5.1
in the manual)
2. I substitute my own mesh and regions, and boundary conditions
3. I solve the problem
4. I look at the tensions between the nodes. If they exceed a certain
threshold, the respective connection breaks up. I change the mesh
5. I repeat 3 to 4 until no connections have to be broken up anymore
Is this a sensible approach?
