The use of object-oriented programming techniques in development of parallel, finite element analysis software enhances software reuse and makes application development more efficient. In this paper, an object-oriented programming framework for developing parallel finite element software is described. All required steps, from data file parsing and equation solving to post processing and graphical user interfaces, are discussed. After development of the framework, a sample parallel finite element code, namely COMPOSE, is taken from its original functional programming paradigm and implemented in the new framework. Besides ease of development, the use of generic visualization and interface tools for software utilizing the framework speeds delivery of research codes to end users.
