I found 4 possible descriptions which should not mixed IMHO, but in this module they are ...

edge finite elements mesh

face finite elements mesh

solid finite elements mesh

wire finite elements mesh

shell finite elements mesh

solid/compsolid finite elements mesh

length finite elements mesh

area finite elements mesh

volume finite elements mesh

1D finite elements mesh

2D finite finiteelements mesh

3D finite elements mesh

there is as well finite line elements mesh

which one fits best. Might there be more?

EDIT: fix word order
