Albany: a Trilinos-based PDE Code

Version Dev



Albany is a PDE code built from numerous Trilinos packages.

Albany is a parallel, unstructured grid finite element code, complete with transformational analysis capabilities such as embedded optimization and UQ. It serves as a testbed, a development environment, and an example code for the algorithms, interfaces and software quality tools in the Trilinos framework.
