MOOSE is a modern open-source, general purpose, high performance finite-element simulator. The Mining Geomechanics team has contributed heavily to its development, in particular to the elasto-plastic solid mechanics aspects and the multi-phase flow through porous media module. See

The Team also has its own closed-source MOOSE-based app which enables simulation of advanced aspects of coal mining. The use of Cosserat continuum mechanics, full coupling to high-precision multi-phase flow and MPI parallelisation allows to build world-class models that contain unrivalled detail and accuracy.
