Geometrically, the local cells are a product of existing cells. This allows existing finite elements to be combined through a tensor product, in order to build finite elements suitable for an extruded mesh. A subset of these are also suitable for unstructured quadrilateral meshes, or their extruded (hexahedral) counterparts.
We also have several simpler examples of element manipulation, which provide a way to implement hybridization or flux reconstruction techniques. These elements are all fully supported within the Firedrake project, which I will naturally talk about briefly.
Center for Biomedical Computing (CBC) aims to develop and apply novel simulation technologies to reach new understanding of complex physical processes affecting human health. We target selected medical problems where insight from mathematical modeling can contribute to changing clinical practice.
