Software development and maintenance for Pyrit – a finite element solver in Python

Hiwi Stelle

Pyrit is a Finite Element Method Based numerical field simulation software written in Python to solve coupled systems of partial differential equations. Currently, the modular solver covers static and quasistatic electric and magnetic fields, stationary current problems, stationary, and transient heat conduction problems. The different modules can be coupled to analyze multiphysical engineering applications, such as e.g. foil windings, cable joints, and surge arresters. The software is under continuous development. Thus, developing further parts and maintaining existing parts of Pyrit are the main tasks.
