KARDOS

Software Package for Solving Non-linear Evolution Problems

Copyright (C) 1997-2001 ZIB Berlin. All rights reserved.

Copyright (C) 2001-2021 Prof. Lang & ZIB Berlin. All rights reserved.

The code KARDOS was originally developed at ZIB Berlin to solve systems of non-linear mixed parabolic-elliptic partial differential equations by means of adaptive space and time discretizations. Linearly implicit one-step methods of Rosenbrock type are coupled with standard Finite Elements of various orders. KARDOS uses unstructured grids in one, two, and three space dimensions.

A large proportion of the current work is carried out in close collaboration with ZIB Berlin. Extensions that we are working on include: incorporation of computational fluid dynamics (CFD), optimisation and moving finite elements.

An older one-dimensional version of KARDOS can be downloaded. More informations on what type of problems can be solved and how to work with KARDOS are provided in the KARDOS User's Guide (appeared as report ZR-02-42 of ZIB Berlin).

Although this software is mainly used for scientific and educational purposes, we are interested in coorperations with external organisations (industry, goverment research laboratories, etc) or other university departments (particularly engineering departments).
