Users modules

MoFEM library itself is designed to be small, modular and extendable. Itself it is not a library of finite elements for solving particular problems of continuum mechanics, e.g. problem of thermal conduction. That is implemented in users modules using MoFEM. User module in principle is an independent project, located in a stand-alone repository, which can be public or private. It can have its own copyright and license. Such flexibility, allowing for privacy and different licensing parts of the code, is designed for needs both of academics and industry. Such code structure enables privacy of users modules, yet enables an industry and academics to contribute to open and free core library, without the need of code branching (which is often the case for industrial versions of open codes).

You can see more documents, data sets, presentations, conference abstract related to users modules in Zenodo library.
