Mesh with hexa elements

9 months ago by
Hi, the following code generates mesh with tetrahedral elements and related function space with tetra lagrange familiy of elements. How can I generate mesh similarly with hexahedral elements and function space?

L = 1; W = 0.2
mesh = BoxMesh(Point(0, 0, 0), Point(L, W, W), 10, 3, 3)
V = VectorFunctionSpace(mesh, 'P', 1)

Hi Birkan,

In the current version there is only support for simplices.

However, there is hope that quadrilateral and hexahedral meshes are soon part of FIAT and thus FEniCS.
Ivan Yashchuk worked on this functionality during this years' google summer of coding and the results look promising!

Maybe one of the developers can give an ETA?
