# Enhancing SfePy with Isogeometric Analysis

@article{Cimrman2014EnhancingSW, title={Enhancing SfePy with Isogeometric Analysis}, author={Robert Cimrman}, journal={ArXiv}, year={2014}, volume={abs/1412.6407} }

In the paper a recent enhancement to the open source package SfePy (Simple Finite Elements in Python, this http URL) is introduced, namely the addition of another numerical discretization scheme, the isogeometric analysis, to the original implementation based on the nowadays standard and well-established numerical solution technique, the finite element method. The isogeometric removes the need of the solution domain approximation by a piece-wise polygonal domain covered by the finite element…
