FEBio implements plugins, which are dynamic libraries that allow users to extend FEBio’s capabilities without having to recompile the entire code.  Instructions for building plugins can be found in the FEBio User’s Manual and Developer’s manual.

Plugins are submitted by developers independent of the FEBio project. Use at your own risk.

    FEBio Version 2.9
    The AngioFE plugin simulates the mechanical interactions between growing neovessels and the deformation of the matrix in vitro. This plugin is provided so that interested readers may reproduce the results of the paper:
    Edgar LT, Maas SA, Guilkey JE, Weiss JA: A coupled model of neovessel growth and matrix mechanics describes and predicts angiogenesis in vitro. Biomechanics and Modeling in Mechanobiology, 14(4):767-782, 2015.
    Note that the current version is a major rewrite of the original work and addresses several issues with the original version presented in the paper mentioned above.
