Higher order FEM for Free-Boundary Equilibrium in FEEQS

Participant : Holger Heumann.

We extended FEEQS.M to work with higher order finite element functions (polynomials of degree 1, ... 11, or Powell-Sabin spline finite element functions). This feature is currently available only for the static modes. The free-boundary aspect is addressed by a subdivision approach, that needs to be improved in the future, to increase the accuracy.
