The Control Volume Finite Element Method (CVFEM) is a hybrid numerical method, combining the physics intuition of Control Volume Methods with the geometric flexibility of Finite Element Methods.The concept of this monograph is to introduce a common framework for the CVFEM solution so that it can be applied to both fluid and solid mechanics problems. To emphasize the essential ingredients, the discussion focuses on the application to problems in two-dimensional domains which are discretized with linear-triangular meshes.
