PDE Solutions Inc. was incorporated in 1995 by the former development staff of SPDE, Inc., creators of the PDEase software package. The purpose of the company is exclusively to provide computational support for the solution of partial differential equation systems in engineering and science.
Our standard software product is FlexPDE; a simple to use, flexible software system for obtaining numerical solutions to single or coupled sets of partial differential equations in one, two or three space dimensions plus time. FlexPDE allows the user to pose his problem in compact problem-oriented form and proceed directly to the graphical presentation of solutions, without digressing to learn the complexities of programming or Finite Element implementation.
The FlexPDE program provides a powerful base for the implementation of custom software packages, tailored to the needs of special problems or applications. We stand ready to help you create custom software products related to numerical modeling in physics, chemistry, geology, biochemistry, cosmology and related fields.
The staff of PDE Solutions Inc. have built their careers in the computational modeling of problems in science and engineering. We are available on a consulting basis for the study and computational analysis of problems small and large. Before you embark on an in-house modeling effort, let us show you how effectively our capabilities can be applied to your needs.
FlexPDE by PDE Solutions Inc is the original Unlimited Multiphysics/Multidiscipline Finite Element Package. It is a ‘scripted finite element model builder’ that reads systems of partial differential equations presented by the user, creates a finite element model of the system, solves it and presents graphical output, all in a convenient interactive environment.
The system may have as many equations as required and may be 1D, 2D or 3D in space; steady-state, time-dependent or eigenvalue; linear or nonlinear; from simple Poisson equations to complex nonlinear reactive systems. FlexPDE knows nothing about specific areas of application; it deals strictly with the mathematics of a PDE system. If you can pose a system of PDE’s and initial/boundary values that represent your problem, then it is likely that FlexPDE can solve it.
As a contribution to quality science education, PDE Solutions Inc makes a limited Lite version of FlexPDE freely available for students. The Lite version has the full 1D, 2D and 3D capability of the professional version, with limitations only in the size of the finite element mesh and the number of simultaneous equations. The Lite version can be licensed to unlock the Professional version. Download it at www.pdesolutions.com/sdmenu7.html.
As a supplement PDE Solutions also offers at no charge a downloadable copy of Gunnar Backstrom’s “Fields of Physics by Finite Element Analysis” with applications to electricity, magnetism and heat. The sample scripts associated with this book are included with PDE Solutions’s own samples.
FlexPDE is in use in hundreds of corporations, universities and government laboratories in over forty countries. From large engineering firms like Dupont, Ericsson, Schott and Mitsubishi, to universities such as MIT and Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics, to government labs like Los Alamos and Lawrence Berkeley National Labs. A partial client list sorted by country can be found at www.pdesolutions.com/clients.html.
FlexPDE can also be used by software professionals to create application-specific products incorporating their own special knowledge of their professional discipline. A list of software that incorporates FlexPDE as the computation engine can be found at www.pdesolutions.com/powered.html .
Whether your 1D, 2D or 3D Multi-Physics PDE problem is:
… or a hundred more
One Software Tool takes you:
From stress analysis to chemical reaction kinetics to stock option pricing, mathematical modeling of real world systems is dominated by partial differential equations. FlexPDE addresses the mathematical basis of all these fields by treating the equations rather than the application. Why buy a separate software product for each of your mathematical modeling problems, when one product can solve them all?
FlexPDE requires no additional software to do the job. You don’t have to buy “modules” to address new fields of study.
