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 axisymmetric 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
