FEBio has undergone some major revisions in the past year. Version 1.2.0
is now available for download at http://mrl.sci.utah.edu/software/febio.
Here are some of the exciting new features:

- faster, multi-threaded linear solvers (Pardiso, SuperLU)

- contact improvements such as improved stability for large compression
problems

- a new biphasic contact algorithm to simulate contact between two
poroelastic materials

- new material models such as strain-dependant poroelasticity,
Holmes-Mow elasticity, ...

As of this version, we will be distributing our test and examples
problems, which illustrate how to setup particular finite element models
in FEBio.

Also, a new release of PostView (version 1.3) is now available. The GUI
was completely redesigned to provide easier and faster access to the
modelís data and properties. A number of improvements were made to the
visualization tools as well.

The MRL website has undergone some major changes. Be sure to check out
the new galleries in FEBio, PreView and PostView. If you have registered
in the past, you will need to re-register on the new site in order to
download software.

We encourage you to report any problems or questions on the Software
Forum: http://mrl.sci.utah.edu/forums/

We would really appreciate any feedback that you may have that would
help us improve FEBio and make it the preferred finite element tool for
computational biomechanics.


Kind Regards,


MRL Software Team
