Up till now several object-oriented Finite Element (FE) frameworks have been presented which are partially extendable. However, the extendability is limited to a few specific directions, e.g. the introduction of new element types or solving strategies. Much less support is available for
task control, creation of new material models, configurable field variable types or extensions of the analysis model.
No framework is available which is especially designed to cover the problems encountered when dealing with geotechnical engineering. IMAGINE tries to close these gaps.
