Topic: CEM Challenges in Multiphysics Modeling and Simulation

Abstract: Since the pioneering effort on computational electro-magnetics (CEM) in the late 1950s, many computational methods have been developed for solving Maxwell’s equations, ranging from frequency- to time-domain and from integral equation to partial differential equation based. As CEM become more and more mature, the time has come to tackle much more challenging multiphysics problems, which have a greater range of applications in sciences and technologies. However, because of the added complexity, multiphysics modeling and simulation encounters new challenges for the existing CEM methods. In this talk, we discuss five challenges that we have observed in our initial effort on multiphysics modeling and simulation, which include (1) Understanding of physical and mathematical models; (2) Accuracy of the electric and magnetic field solutions; (3) Coupling of different physics; (4) Multiscale, large-scale, nonlinear, and nonstationary issues; (5) Long learning and training process and difficulty to publish.
