Gridap: An extensible Finite Element toolbox in Julia

Santiago Badia, Francesc Verdugo

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearch


Gridap is a new Finite Element (FE) framework, exclusively written in the Julia programminglanguage, for the numerical simulation of a wide range of mathematical models governed bypartial differential equations (PDEs). The library provides a feature-rich set of discretization techniques, including continuous and discontinuous FE methods with Lagrangian, Raviart Thomas, or Nédélec interpolations, and supports a wide range of problem types including linear, nonlinear, single-field, and multi-field PDEs (see (Badia, Martín, & Principe, 2018,Section 3) for a detailed presentation of the mathematical abstractions behind the implementation of these FE methods). Gridap is designed to help application experts to easily simulate real-world problems, to help researchers improve productivity when developing new FE-related techniques, and also for its usage in numerical PDE courses.
