The progam package FEAT is a general purpose subroutine system for the numerical solution of partial differential equations by the finite element method. The package part FEAT2D is designed to handle problems in two space dimensions, while the part FEAT3D handles the 3D case. FEATxD provides tools for typical tasks as:

  • domain description
  • mesh generation (triangles, quadrilateral, hexahedrals, tetraeders)
  • finite element shape functions (conforming, nonconforming, constant, linear ...)
  • generation of matrices and load vectors
  • boundary conditions
  • numerical solution (simple Richardson iteration, CG-like solvers, multigrid tools)
  • error evaluation
  • graphical postprocessing
FEAT has been successfully applied in problems arising from elasticity, neutron transport, and particularly for CFD problems.

Based on FEAT2D and FEAT3D, the progam package FEATFLOW is both a user oriented as well as a general purpose subroutine system for the numerical solution of the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations in two and three space dimensions.
