ALAMODE (A LAyered MOdel Development Environment) is a partial
differential equation solver targeted at solving systems of PDEs
arising from models for impurity redistribution in semiconductors
during thermal processing. It allows user-level specification of an
arbitrary system of PDEs consisting of diffusive, advective, and
reactive terms. It discretizes and solves the equations using a
nonlinear semidiscrete FEM approach, and currently uses Stanford
SUPREM structure files for mesh input and output.
The next release of Alamode will be driven by a portable equation
description front-end. For an overview of the description language,
see the white paper (html, PostScript, PDF). (Unfortunately,
this project was cancelled due to lack of funding.)
97.08.19 release is available. If you are running an earlier
release, please upgrade.
A set of example scripts is available.
