Starting on January 2011 OpenPALM has become Open Source under the LGPL v3 license
To efficiently represent complex systems, numerical modelling has to rely on many physical models at a time: an ocean model coupled with an atmospheric model is at the basis of climate modelling;
a turbulent reactive fluid model coupled with a radiation and conduction models allows the computation of a combustion chamber temperature. The continuity of the solution is granted only if these models can constantly exchange information.
OpenPALM is a software allowing the concurrent execution and the intercommunication of programs based on in-house as well as commercial codes.
The OpenPALM team is composed of Cerfacs and Onera people. Don't hesitate to contact us directly (email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com) if you want informations on the coupler, on training sessions, on the instrumentations on the code to couple as well as on coupling algorithms.
