Framework for scientific simulations

Simframe is a Python framework to facilitate scientific simulations. The scope of the software is to provide a framework which can hold data fields, which can be used to integrate differential equations, and which can read and write data files.

Data fields are stored in modified numpy.ndarrays. Therefore, Simframe can only work with data, that can be stored in NumPy arrays.


pip install simframe
