Many interesting phenomena are characterized by the complex interaction of different physical processes, each often best modeled numerically via a specific approach. In this paper, we present the design and implementation of an object-oriented framework for performing multiphysics simulations that allows for the monolithic coupling of different numerical schemes. In contrast, most of the currently available simulation tools are tailored towards a specific numerical model, so that one must… Expand
