ZeBuLoN FE Software

ZéBuLoN FE Software Presentation

Developed jointly by ONERA, Northwest Numerics (Seattle, USA) and the Centre des Matériaux, ZéBuLoN is a finite element code adapted to non-linear mechanics problems. Programmed in C++, ZéBuLoN possesses an object-oriented modular structure which comprises:

  • Z-master: a graphic interface for pre and post-processing. It is now distributed in two versions:
    • Z-master 2D, which comprises a two dimensional link opening on to three dimensional constructions through exclusion, and
    • Z-master 3D which combines the BLSurf (three dimensional surface) and the GHS3D (three dimensional volumetric) mesh generators developed at INRIA.
  • Z-solve: a numerical solver;
  • Z-psolve: a parallel numerical solver;
  • Z-post: a sequential or parallel post-processing code, which offers a post-processing of results either globally or locally;
  • Z-sim: a simulator aimed at testing a constitutive material on an representative volume element of the material before undertaking structural calculations (note that these types of elements enable loads to be applied by simply specifying either stress/traction or strain boundary conditions);
  • Z-optim: an optimiser adapted to the resolution of inverse problems, to identify material model parameters and to the optimisation of structures;
  • Z-mat: an extensive library which enables the development of complex constitutive material laws through an object-orientated modulable interface based on the ZebFront user language.

Years of research have led to the development of a materials library comprising a substantial number of constitutive material and life prediction models unparalleled on the world market. This is combined with robust integration methods as well as efficient procedures for identifying model coefficients.

In the aim of making research findings available to users world wide, work recently began in order to link Z-mat with the major structural codes available commercially. Modules such as Z-aba (for Abaqus), Z-mark, Z-ansys, Z-samcef and Z-aster have been developed.

To respond to this range of demand, ZéBuLoN is distributed for UNIX/Linux, Windows, Sun, Hewlett Packard, Silicon Graphics and IBM platforms.
