Welcome to the interactive documentation on the Spindle FEA application


This is the interactive documentation of the application designed to perform parametric stability modelling of the mitotic spindle structures in various cell types during mitosis. The application relies on Abaqus CAE finite element code and allows users to design and execute mitotic spindle modelling provided the essential spindle parameter value are provided. The application is created in Python 2.7 and has a modular structure which allows easy modification and extension of the current functionality.

This documentation is a work in progress and is prone to changes and updates and so is the application itself.


Please site the application itself (doi:10.5258/SOTON/D0603) ePrints or any publication from the List of Publications.
