Multidisciplinary-design Adaptation and Sensitivity Toolkit (MAST) is being developed at the Computational Dynamics and Design Laboratory through research efforts with a focus on design of nonlinear multiphysics systems that exhibit dynamic responses. Due to the need for computational efficiency and reliability in design, specialized mechanisms have been implemented to efficiently quantify the static and dynamic stability characteristics of such systems. Significant effort has been made towards the design of object-oriented data-structures that allow easy extensibility of the solvers. The framework implements sensitivity analysis for all solver components with interfaces to multiple optimization softwares. MAST leverages open-source libraries to enable efficient high-performance computations.
MAST leverages the following libraries:
- libMesh for finite element analysis capabilities,
- PETSc for linear and nonlinear solvers.
- SLEPc for eigensolvers,
- Eigen for dense matrix and vector operations.
