Rheolef is a computer environment that serves as a convenient laboratory for computations involving finite element-like methods. It provides a set of unix commands and C++ algorithms and containe

Containers covers first the classic graph data structure for spars matrix formats and finite element meshes.

An higher level of abstraction is provided by containers related t approximate finite element spaces, discrete fields and bilinear fo

Current applications cover

  • Poisson problems in 1D 2D and 3D with P1 or P2 elements
  • Stokes problems in 2D with P2-P1 or P1 bubble-P1 elements
  • non-linear Bingham fluid flow problems
Input and Output in various file format for meshes generators and numerical data visualization systems (vtk, plotmtv, gnuplot).
