View Full Version : Introducing IA-FEMesh v1.0

08-26-2008, 12:18 AM
It is my pleasure to announce the release of IA-FEMesh (Iowa FE Mesh)
version 1.0, a freely available software toolkit. The program was
designed in an effort to facilitate anatomic FE model development.
IA-FEMesh employs a multiblock meshing scheme aimed at hexahedral mesh
generation. An emphasis has been placed on making the tools
interactive, in an effort to create a user-friendly environment. The
goal is to provide an efficient and reliable method for model
development, visualization, and mesh quality evaluation. While these
tools have been developed, initially, in the context of skeletal
structures, they can be applied to a virtually endless number of
modeling applications.

The software, an example dataset (image and surface definition), and a
User's Manual are available at the project website:
