The Electromagnetics in COMSOL Multiphysics (RF) course provides an introduction to the fundamentals of performing analyses of RF electromagnetic wave phenomena using COMSOL Multiphysics. It is expected that participants will have a working knowledge of COMSOL Multiphysics before attending. AltaSim’s instructors will draw on their experience as COMSOL Certified Consultants solving a wide range of problems on a daily basis to teach you the practical aspects of performing realistic analysis of electromagnetic problems. The course will introduce the fundamental governing Maxwell equation for electromagnetic wave propagation and how they are implemented in COMSOL Multiphysics. Participants will understand the important material properties required for accurate simulation of RF electromagnetic phenomena and how they are used. The unique boundary conditions and mesh refinements required for RF electromagnetic analyses will be discussed in detail. Specific application to a range of wave propagation modes will be presented and supplemented by demonstration for different conditions of interest to engineers developing RF electromagnetic analyses. On completion you will be proficient in setting up and solving analyses of a wide range of electromagnetic wave phenomena using COMSOL Multiphysics.


The cost of this two-day course is $1350 per person.

Who should attend Electromagnetics in COMSOL Multiphysics (RF)

Electromagnetics in COMSOL Multiphysics (RF) is intended for people who wish to analyze electromagnetic wave phenomena using COMSOL Multiphysics. It is expected that attendees will have an existing knowledge of the structure of COMSOL Multiphysics and will possess a relevant engineering, physics, mathematics or science background.

Day 1, 9:00am – 5:00pm

An initial overview will be provided of the governing equations of electromagnetic wave propagation and the relevant material properties required for numerical analysis. Detailed consideration will be given to the selection and implementation of the relevant boundary conditions required for accurate analysis. At the end of Day 1 participants will have an understanding of the following items:

  • Fundamental governing equations of electromagnetic wave phenomena
  • Required material properties
  • Selection of general boundary conditions for electric and magnetic field
  • Best practices for selection of mesh refinement
  • Application of perfectly matched layers
  • Calculation of critical parameters in the analysis of electromagnetic waves

Day 2, 9:00am – 5:00pm

The second day will extend the content of Day 1 by applying analysis of electromagnetic using COMSOL Multiphysics to a range of relevant application commonly encountered in analyzing electromagnetic phenomena. At the end of Day 2 participants will have an understanding of the following items:

  • Wave propagation under a variety of situations
  • Analysis of wave propagation using waveguides and transmission lines
  • Electromagnetic wave radiation
  • Analysis of electromagnetic scattering and diffraction


Instruction will be performed by experienced engineers who use COMSOL Multiphysics on a daily basis to solve real world problems. Among the instructors will be:

Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take to complete S3?
Study and Simulate are a function of Solve. The scope and complexity of the required solution will determine the time required to identify the root causes, isolate the critical parameters, and develop cross disciplinary/multifunction solutions that provide sustained benefit.
