PyFR is an open-source Python based framework for solving advection-diffusion type problems on streaming architectures using the Flux Reconstruction approach of Huynh. The framework is designed to solve a range of governing systems on mixed unstructured grids containing various element types. It is also designed to target a range of hardware platforms via use of an in-built domain specific language derived from the Mako templating engine. The current release (PyFR 0.2.1) has the following capabilities:
PyFR is not a fully fledged ‘production’ flow solver with all the associated bells and whistles. Additionally, while we will do our best to help new users, no level of support is guaranteed!
PyFR is available for free under an open-source license. You can download it here.
