The caribou project is aimed at multiphysics computation. It brings a plugin that complements SOFA multiphysics framework. It also provides generic c++ utilities, and SOFA components such as solvers and forcefields.

The project is composed of two modules:

  1. The Caribou library brings multiple geometric, linear analysis and topological tools that are designed to be as independent as possible from external projects.

  2. The Sofa caribou library is built on top of the caribou library, but brings new components to the SOFA project as a plugin.
