PyLith

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

PyLith v2.1.4 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 Wiki for instructions) for running PyLith within a portable, virtual Linux environment. Windows users should install Docker and use the Docker image.

Release Notes

Version 2.1.4
  • Added --version command line argument to display version information for PyLith and its dependencies.
  • Improved information displayed with the --help command line argument.
  • Added --include-citations command line argument to display publications to cite when publishing results from computations using PyLith. General PyLith references are also displayed with the --version command line argument.
  • Allow use of NetCDF versions greater than 4.1.3. Switch from using C++ API to C API.
  • Fixed bug in Pythia associated with validation of parameters being done before help could be displayed.
  • Fixed typos in manual for gravity and point forces.
  • Added integration with Travis for automated testing.

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.
