very good idea. The constraints to define them are available. The analysis types could be easily extended in CalculiX.Jee-Bee wrote: ↑Wed Jul 15, 2020 8:19 amThe basic FEM features are implemented for all / most solvers. But for elmer there are some specific type of analysis types that are only implemented in Elmer.
Why not making also these anlaysis types availeble for Calculix. It is posible according their documentation:

(probably i miss one or more links specially on the flow side. since i don't have elmer and the FEM documentation is a bit behind i can't compare them
this is totally up to you. Add an analysis, delete the standardsolver, add your BCs and add the solver you like. cheers berndjohnwang wrote: ↑Wed Jul 15, 2020 11:59 amIt seems to me that fc fem chose a solver first, then define other things like BCs for that solver.
I'd like to see one could define BCs and other things first. At the end, choose which solver and output case file for that solver. Or even output a few cases file for several solvers.I think in this way, it is more easy to introduce new solver into fc.
Sure there is times you need to specify some special BCs for one paticular solver.
