Represents the linear triangular finite element for transient incompressible flow analysis using SUPG/PSPG stabilization with equal order approximation of velocity and pressure fields. Each node has 3 degrees of freedoms (two components of velocity and pressure). The node numbering is anticlockwise. The element features are summarized in Table 61.
Keyword  Tr1SUPG 
Description  linear triangular finite element for transient incompressible flow analysis using SUPG/PSPG algorithm 
Specific parameters  [vof #(rn)] [pvof #(rn)] 
Unknowns  Two velocity components (V_u and V_v) and pressure (P_f) are required in each node. 
Approximation  Linear approximation of velocity and pressure fields. 
Integration  exact 
Loads  Constant boundary tractions are supported. Body loads representing the selfweight load are supported. 
Multifluid analysis  The element has support for solving problems with two immiscible fluids in a fixed spatial domain. In the present implementation, a VOF and LevelSet tracking algorithms are used to track the position of interface. In case of VOF tracking, an initial VOF fraction (volume fraction of reference fluid) can be specified using vof (default is zero). Element can also be marked as allways filled with reference fluid (some form of source) using parameter pvof which specifies the permanent VOF value. In case of LevelSet tracking, the initial levelset is specified using reference polygon (see corresponding levelset record in oofem input manual). The material model should be of type Keyword: twofluidmat, that supports modelling of two immiscible fluids.

Implementation of P2P1 Taylor Hood element for transient incompressible flow analysis using SUPG and LSIC stabilization. It consists of globally continuous, piecewise quadratic functions for approximation in velocity space and globally continuous, piecewise linear functions for approximation in pressure space. LBB condition is satisfied. There are 3 degrees of freedom in vertices (two components of velocity and pressure), and 2 degrees of freedom in edge nodes (two components of velocity only). The node numbering is anticlockwise, vertices are numbered first. The element features are summarized in Table 62.
