Welcome on OOFEM official page

OOFEM is free finite element code with object oriented architecture for solving mechanical, transport and fluid mechanics problems that operates on various platforms.

The aim of this project is to develop efficient and robust tool for FEM computations as well as to provide modular and extensible environment for future development. OOFEM is released under GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL).

The current version of OOFEM is 2.5

The following is a list of recent additions to this web. Whenever a new paper or specification is written or important event happens, a notice will be put here. The most recent changes are listed first. You can follow OOFEM on Twitter and use #OOFEMorg hashtag.

OOFEM 2024 autumn training course is announcing the 2024 autumn training course for Ph.D. students, engineers, and researchers to allow them to quickly acquire the knowledge and practical skills necessary to employ OOFEM.

  • Course date: 9-11. September, 2024
  • Venue: Czech Technical University, Prague, Czech Republic
  • See Courses page for more information and registration

New OOFEM blog

Announcing a new blog about OOFEM project to offer a platform to communicate project announcements, feature previews, new features, and achieved results.

Migration of project pages

After hardware issues we are in process of transferring project webpages to a new server. During the process, some pages may not be reachable. Please be patient.
