Electric Shielding

Application ID: 460


Many applications involve simulating the electromagnetic behavior of relatively thin material in voluminous domains. To save computer memory and processing time, the thin materials can be treated differently by resolving them with 3D meshes.

Here, the modeling domain is a box filled with air containing an electrode. The sides of the box are insulated while the top has a potential and the bottom is grounded.

This is a tutorial model to show how to model isolated highly conductive objects using electric shielding boundary conditions.

This application was built using the following:

AC/DC Module

The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on the physics interfaces that define it. Particular physics interfaces may be common to several products (see the Specification Chart for more details). To determine the right combination of products for your project, you should evaluate all of your needs in light of each product's capabilities, consultation with the COMSOL Sales and Support teams, and the use of an evaluation license.
