Ocellaris is a mass conserving DG FEM solver for sharp interface multi-phase free surface flows. Ocellaris can simulate water entry and exit of objects in ocean waves with accurate capturing of the force on the object and the behaviour of the free surface. Ocellaris is implemented in Python and C++ with FEniCS as the backend for the mesh and finite element assembly. PETSc is used for solving the resulting linear systems.
This is Ocellaris version 2019.1.0. For installation instructions, see the Ocellaris web page. The release is also available on PyPi. The easiest way to install and test Ocellaris is through the provided Docker and Singularity containers.
