Automated Meshing for Electromagnetic Waves, Frequency Domain Simulations

Duration: 2:35

Introduced with COMSOL Multiphsyics 5.0, you can enable automated meshing for Perfectly Matched Layers (PMLs). In this video, we will show you how to implement automated meshing of Electromagnetic Waves, Frequency Domain simulations, using the RF or Wave Optics Modules.

PMLs are artificial absorbing layers, for wave equations, that aid in simulating problems involving open boundaries. The automated meshing feature applies a swept mesh to 3D domains and a mapped mesh to 2D domains. Additionally, the mesh is scaled based on the material properties of the model, resolving the local wavelength.
