Elastica is a software to simulate the dynamics of filaments that, at every cross-section, can undergo all six possible modes of deformation, allowing the filament to bend, twist, stretch and shear, while interacting with complex environments via muscular activity, surface contact, friction and hydrodynamics.
PyElastica is the python implementation of Elastica, which is a free and open-source software project for the simulation of assemblies of slender, one-dimensional structures using Cosserat Rod theory. More information about Elastica and Cosserat rod theory is available at the Elastica project website
The current version of PyElastica released here is the educational version. This version is a straight forward Python implementation of the Elastica code making heavy use of numpy. As such, it is very slow. We are working on a significantly accelerated Python version of the code that we hope to release soon.
PyElastica is compatible with Python 3.5 - 3.8. The easiest way to install PyElastica is with PIP.
pip install pyelastica
Documentation of PyElastica is available at docs.cosseratrods.org
PyElastica is developed by the Gazzola Lab at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
