Akantu: a FEM library

license joss

Akantu means a little element in Kinyarwanda, a Bantu language. From now on it is also an opensource object-oriented Finite-Element library which has the ambition to be generic and efficient. Akantu is developed within the LSMS (Computational Solid Mechanics Laboratory)*, where research is conducted at the interface of mechanics, material science, and scientific computing. The open-source philosophy is important for any scientific software project evolution. The collaboration permitted by shared codes enforces sanity when users (and not only developers) can criticize the implementation details. Akantu was born with the vision to associate genericity, robustness and efficiency while benefiting the open-source visibility.
