Pfem v0.9 is an update of Pfem v0.8 developped by 

Jonah Lee, Xianggang Zhang, Doug Goering 
from Department of Mechanical Engineering 
University of Alaska Fairbanks, Fairbanks, AK, 99775-5905, U.S.A.

Pfem is...

A Python-based finite element program licensed uder GPL. Current
capabilities are quite limited including 2-D and 3-D heat transfer
with phase change. Not all elements work with all features (to be
addressed shortly). The elasticity portion still needs to be
synchronized with the latest version (not quite working with the new
version). Input data file is in the format of ABAQUS.

The Pfem v0.9 is only an update to Python v2.3 and a new
file for Distutils. The source file structure and the module structure
has been changed. Some minor changes in the code due to the port to v2.3
The ABAQUS keyword *INCLUDE in config files is now taken into account.

This package requires Numeric (hey, good !)
