For the moment this kind of strategy has not been tested.

there is an exemple of small strain isotropic perfect plasticity in

Finite deformation is working (for any element) : see

The incompressibility is taken into account in tests/ 
with a mixed method.

Well, Getfem is a finite element library, so you have to do a lot of things by 
yourself. If you understand well the brick system you can build multiphysic 
problem very fast but this means writing some new bricks ... or at least new 
assembly procedures.

not special tools hve been developped to solve the transport equation.
