Can one use cylindrical coordinates in Libmesh? If yes, then how and is there anything in particular I need to remember while doing so? You can solve axi-symmetric problems using the standard 2D capabilites of libmesh, as long as you remember to multiply by "r" in all the integrals. Solving a general problem in (r,theta,z) might be possible, but I don't know exactly what you would have to do for that... -- John ```
