Yes, FEM is a variant of Galerkin method with a special choice of the base - it contains functions with small compact support (tied with the mesh elements) leading to a sparse matrix problem.

OK, so i think anyone with python knowledge can do 3D Finite Element Analysis in sfepy provided that they have the weak formulation of the governing PDE of physical problem and boundary conditions??
