[CIG-ALL] CIG New Release: ConMan v3.0.0


CIG is pleased to announce a new release of ConMan (version
, a 2D Cartesian finite element code for mantle convection. In this release, the cumbersome c-based
malloc package for dynamic memory allocation in Fortran77 is replaced with
allocate and deallocate statements. The
new version includes the compressible convection formulations commonly used in
deep earth dynamics as well as examples from the subduction zone
benchmark. Users looking for a simple code
that uses a direct matrix solver and has no external library dependencies may
find this code to be a useful starting point.
