OpenGeoSys - Open-source multi-physics
OpenGeoSys (OGS) is a scientific open source project for the development of numerical methods for the simulation of thermo-hydro-mechanical-chemical (THMC) coupled processes in porous and fractured media. OGS has been successfully applied in the fields of regional, contaminant and coastal hydrology, fundamental and geothermal energy systems, geotechnical engineering, energy storage, CO2 sequestration/storage and nuclear waste management and disposal.
OpenGeoSys provides a flexible simulation framework, a wide array of pre- and postprocessing tools to implement comprehensive simulation workflows as well as the possibility to utilize HPC environments for very large simulations runs. It is developed as an open-source community project. Limited support is available at the community forum.
