Dear all

I am looking for a generalized solver (library) for user defined set of PDE using finite element.

I dound deal.II, OpenFoam, FEniCS, LibMesh, Finite element tool kit (FETK), OOFEM, GetFEM++ etc....

Can anyone suggest a most flexible library (free and open source) package where I can define my own set of PDEs rather than built-in equation designed for a specific application domain (such as Fluid, solid, transport phenomena etc...)?

FlexPDE sounds quite flexible, but it's not free.

regards
Richard

Have you looked at Overture from Lawrence Livermore Labs (LLNL)?
