We are currently in the closed beta-testing phase. You will see a lot of content here, but if you are not invited beta tester, please wait until March 2020 before contacting us or trying to download openCARP

Getting started

openCARP offers a wide range of functionality which enables you to create your own in-silico experiments of cardiac electrophysiology.

Please read the following questions. If you answer with "yes", please read the corresponding section. The sections range from newbies to expert users.

New to cardiac modeling?

If this is (almost) your first contact with cardiac computational modeling, please read the introductory material on cardiac modeling related to single cells and tissue modeling or watch our basic videos.

New to openCARP or CARP/CARPentry?

If you have went through the material suggested in the last section or have already experience with a different cardiac modeling environment, please first go through our examples explaining some basic features of openCARP and the openCARP Modeling Environment (CME) based on the framework carputils. You will need an installed version of openCARP for this. Information for installation can be found in the last section.

Experienced CARP/CARPentry user?

If you have used CARP or CARPentry before, you should know most of the features and interfaces of openCARP. The differences between CARP/CARPentry and openCARP are explained here.

Do you need help with installation of openCARP?

We suggest unexperienced users to first try openCARP on our docker container as you don't need to install much on your computer despite docker. For more experienced users and those more familiar with software installation, please install openCARP from source code. This version should also work well on parallel computers. Both ways to install openCARP are detailed on the installation page.
