The Free Finite Element Package is a modular designed collection of C libraries. These libraries contain numerical methods required when working with linear and quadratic Finite Elements in two dimensions. FFEP works on GNU/Linux and is portable to every system where MEML, which means, LAPACK and BLAS are available.

With the Finite Element Method (FEM) (Wikipedia Article) it is possible to solve partial differential equations (PDE) (Wikipedia Article). See under the section About for further details.

Right now version 0.8.2 is available which is a beta-Version. You should consider this before using FFEP! To contact the developer write a mail to joerg @ frochte . de
