science Mesh and field I/O library and scientific database
- New port silo-4.6.1
A mesh and field I/O library and scientific database
Silo is a library for reading and writing a wide variety of scientific
data to binary, disk files. The files Silo produces and the data within
them can be easily shared and exchanged between wholly independently
developed applications running on disparate computing platforms.
Consequently, Silo facilitates the development of general purpose tools
for processing scientific data. One of the more popular tools that process
Silo data files is the VisIt visualization tool.
Silo supports gridless (point) meshes, structured meshes, unstructured-zoo
and unstructured-arbitrary-polyhedral meshes, block structured AMR meshes,
constructive solid geometry (CSG) meshes, piecewise-constant (e.g.
zone-centered) and piecewise-linear (e.g. node-centered) variables defined
on the node, edge, face or volume elements of meshes as well as the
decomposition of meshes into arbitrary subset hierarchies including
materials and mixing materials. In addition, Silo supports a wide variety
of other useful objects to address various scientific computing
application needs.Although the Silo library is a serial library, it has
some key features which enable it to be applied quite effectively and
scalably in parallel.
