In April 2016 Manchester eScholar was replaced by the University of Manchester’s new Research Information Management System, Pure. All scholarly work records and full-texts stored in Manchester eScholar were migrated to the new system prior to this transition. From August 2016 the University’s research outputs will be available to view and download via the new Research Portal. Until then the old eScholar content WILL BE TEMPORARILY available to search and browse via this archive.

Abstract

The IFISS Incompressible Flow & Iterative Solver Software package contains software which can be run with MATLAB or Octave to create a computational laboratory for the interactive numerical study of incompressible flow problems. It includes algorithms for discretization by mixed finite element methods and a posteriori error estimation of the computed solutions, together with state-of-the-art preconditioned iterative solvers for the resulting discrete linear equation systems. In this paper we give a flavour of the code's main features and illustrate its applicability using several case studies. We aim to show that IFISS can be a valuable tool in both teaching and research.
