The FEBio software suite is a set of software tools for nonlinear finite element analysis in biomechanics and biophysics. The development, distribution, and support is a joint effort between the Jeff Weiss’ laboratory at the University of Utah and Gerard Ateshian’s laboratory at Columbia University. FEBio is specifically focused on solving nonlinear large deformation problems in biomechanics and biophysics.

As of October 2017, the FEBio community consists of over 8,000 registered users. The installation packages for the FEBio Software Suite have been downloaded over 40,000 times. The number of downloads over time tracks closely with the number of registered users, suggesting that our users continue to show sustained interest with every new release.

The software suite is composed of the following three packages:
