Yes, you can use curvilinear coordinates in combinations with any other study. The study used to compute the curvilinear coordinate system is either a Stationary or Eigenvalue study. However, the resulting coordinate system can be used with any physics and study.

Thanks for explaining such a versatile technique.

I am not able to plot the components of a vector though, as determined by the new coordinate system. For instance, if the new basis vectors are e1,e2 and e3 (defined by curvilinear coordinate system), I do not know how to plot say electric field in the direction of e1. Can you please suggest a way to do so?

I also want to use the e1 component of the electric field as a variable in the global equation, if possible, suggest a simple way to write that in an equation. For example, It is very easy to use the z-component of Electric field by writing mf.Ez; can’t do it similarly for e1 component though.

Thanks.

]]>Thanks for the example. Is it possible that you can provide me the mph file that you have created as the example does not clearly show how you have implemented the BC.

Thanks
