We develop a flexible Hamiltonian-based electro-mechanical model to find the conduction and three valence bands in strained materials. For this, we develop efficient eigenvalue solvers and identify the eigenvalues with band energies via analytic continuation. Finally, we combine three existing codes into one open-source solver for charge transport in strained materials.
