Zebulon is a non-linear finite element solver of the Z-set suite which addresses the whole range of problems arising in structural mechanics. It is jointly developed by École des Mines ParisTech (France), Onera – the French Aerospace Lab, and NW Numerics & Moldeling, Inc (USA). Zebulon may use multi-threading to accelerate material integration and linear system resolution on a single shared memory machine.

For more information, visit the Zebulon Official Website.
