The integral order

Hi, I download the file:
www.comsol.com/showroom/downloadfile/model/12211/version/comsol42a/file/Image_Import.pptx
and the model
porous_thermal.mph
here was defined an integral, to integrate the total heat flux on the left boundary (2D model), (intop1) (slide 12).
The integral order was 4.
Is that Ok?.
The integral is on a plane. I think that the integration order is 2.
Jose

Hi

COMSOL uses mostly 4th order integration, by default, but you might change that if you have other preferrences, or good reasons

Good luck
