There are various codes - free and proprietary ones - currently coupled with preCICE. If you want to add your code here, please let us know.

Official adapters

We host adapters for the following codes in the preCICE GitHub organization and we maintain them to work with the latest release of preCICE (unless stated otherwise).

Third-party adapters

The preCICE community has successfully coupled the following codes with preCICE for community projects. Wherever meaningful (license, maturity of the project, no other home), we host the code repository.
