### 3.6.2 Elements Section

The Elements sections contain a list of the element connectivity data. Multiple Elements sections can be defined. The Elements section has the following attributes.
 Attribute Description type element type name unique name that identifies this domain
Each Elements section contains multiple elem elements that define the element connectivities. Each elem tag has a id attribute that defines the element number. For example, the following Elements section defines a list of hexahedral elements:
<Elements type="hex8" name="part1">
<elem id="1">1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8</elem>
<elem id="2">9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16</elem>
...
</Elements>

FEBio classifies elements in two categories, namely solids and shells.
