PyLith

PyLith is a finite-element code for dynamic and quasistatic simulations of crustal deformation, primarily earthquakes and volcanoes.

PyLith v2.2.0 provides a few new minor features and bugfixes.

Binaries are available from the links below. Detailed installation instructions for the binary packages are in the User Manual. Use the PyLith Installer to install from source with detailed building instructions for a few platforms in the INSTALL file bundled with the PyLith Installer utility. We also offer a Docker image (see the PyLith User Manual for instructions) for running PyLith within a portable, virtual Linux environment. Windows users should install Docker and use the Docker image.

Release Notes

Version 2.2.0
  • Added a browser-based parameter viewer for interactive viewing of all PyLith parameters and version information. See Section 4.10 PyLith Parameter Viewer of the PyLith user manual.
  • Adjusted packaging of the binary distributions so that they can be used to extend PyLith and/or integrate other code with PyLith.
  • Converted the user manual from Lyx to LaTeX and added syntax highlighting of parameter and spatial database files. Fixed several typos.
  • Fixed bug that sometimes resulted in an inconsistent fault orientation when running in parallel. The bug appears to have been introduced in v2.0.
  • Fixed two bugs in output of solution at points that sometimes happened in parallel simulations. The errors include:
    • The order of the station names does not match the order of the points. The point data is written in parallel by process order, so the points for process 0 are written first, then those for process 1, etc. This often results in reordering of the points. The station names were written in the original order.
    • The output values for some points are incorrect. The wrong cells were being used in the interpolation.

Current Release

Binaries

These binaries are suitable for use on single core/processor computers as well as multi-core or multi-processor computers. They can only be used on a single compute node of cluster. Users wanting to run PyLith on multiple compute nodes of a cluster must build from source.
