Software Architecture

  • Anonymous - 2004-04-05

    Dear Reader:

       Since there are many open source pieces available, have you thought about leveraging these to create an industrial strength environment? I am thinking of OpenSEES, OpenCASCADE, Shalom, etc. I think it would be fantastic if we can accomplish a plug-and-play architecture that supports engineering optimization, research, and development. Love to read what your plans are.

      Well, we were also thinking about going maybe towards an interface with OpenCASCADE. So, if you are interested, do not hesitate to join the project by downloading sources.
      At the moment, only few things are developped : only mesh characteristics starting from unstructured meshes out of Gmsh. But things can evolve and if we find that we can interface OpenFlower with such a powerful tool as OpenCASCADE is, than it would be great.

      Hope to read from you soon,
      an OpenFlower Admin.
