In this paper a comparison between the finite element and the finite volume methods is presented in the context of elliptic, convective–diffusion and fluid flow problems. The paper shows that both procedures share a number of features, like mesh discretization and approximation. Moreover, it is shown that in many cases both techniques are completely equivalent.
