What Happens If I Use 2 Different Unit Systems in 1 Simulation?

December 6, 2017

Using 2 different unit systems for 1 project has led to historical disasters. Fortunately, you can use different unit systems in your simulation without issues by using the COMSOL® software.

How to Model Optical Anisotropic Media with COMSOL Multiphysics®

December 4, 2017

Erasmus Bartholinus first observed the optical effect of birefringence in 1669. Today, you can observe this effect with a specialized modeling approach for optical anisotropic media.

Should I Fillet the Geometry in My Electromagnetic Heating Analysis?
