Computational impact, friction and contact mechanics. the Siconos software

vacary's picture

Dear colleagues,

For people interesting in the simulation of solids mechanics with impact contact and friction, we are pleased to announce a new release of the Siconos software. The software is open-source, under GPL Licence and can be found at
It contains several time--stepping integrators for the nonsmooth dynamics and a large of solvers of the frictional contact problems that can be used separately. The numerical methods are mainly based on the book:  Numerical methods for nonsmooth dynamical systems: Appications in Mechanics and Electronics. Acary, V. and Brogliato, B. Springer Verlag. 2008

The software provides the user with two programming interfaces. C++ or Python.
All the best, Vincent A.
