This year Deltares will host the Kratos Multiphysics Workshop 2022, as part of the Delft Software Days - Edition 2022 (DSD-INT 2022)

Kratos is an Open-Source framework for the implementation of numerical methods for the solution of engineering problems. It is written in C++ and is designed to allow collaborative development by large teams of researchers focusing on modularity as well as on performance. The Kratos features a "core" and "applications" approach where "standard tools" (databases, linear algebra, search structures, etc...) come as a part of the core and are available as building blocks in the development of "applications" which focus on the solution of the problems of interest. Its ultimate goal is to simplify the development of new numerical methods. (

In Deltares we have successfully implemented a several numerical geotechnical kernels using this Finite Element Framework, culminating in the Geo-Mechanics Application. On which a number of research and product tools are being developed for use by geotechnical practitioners. (

The Kratos workshop 2022 will be held on Wednesday - Thursday, 09 - 10 November 2022, on-premises, at Deltares (Boussinesqweg 1, Delft), The Netherlands. This will be a venue for all users and developers of Kratos worldwide to present and discuss the latest applications, new scientific insights in modelling, not only in the Computational Geo-Mechanics field, but in the wider application base of Kratos. The second day will also enable users to ask questions directly to Kratos technical committee and team of developers.
