FreeFEM is a partial differential equation solver for non-linear multi-physics systems in 1D, 2D, 3D and 3D border domains (surface and curve).

Problems involving partial differential equations from several branches of physics, such as fluid-structure interactions, require interpolations of data on several meshes and their manipulation within one program. FreeFEM includes a fast interpolation algorithm and a language for the manipulation of data on multiple meshes.

FreeFEM is written in C++ and its language is a C++ idiom.

FreeFEM currently interfaces to the following libraries:
