Silo is a library for reading and writing a wide variety of scientific data to
binary, disk files.
Silo supports gridless (point) meshes, structured meshes, unstructured-zoo
and unstructured-arbitrary-polyhedral meshes, block structured AMR meshes,
constructive solid geometry (CSG) meshes, piecewise-constant
(e.g. zone-centered) and piecewise-linear (e.g. node-centered) variables
defined on the node, edge, face or volume elements of meshes as well as
the decomposition of meshes into arbitrary subset hierarchies including
materials and mixing materials. In addition, Silo supports a wide variety of
other useful objects to address various scientific computing application
needs. Although the Silo library is a serial library, it has some key features
which enable it to be applied quite effectively and scalable in parallel.
