# Electromagnetics

Solve problems that model electric and magnetic fields

Solve PDEs that model static electric and magnetic fields. A typical programmatic workflow for solving an electromagnetic problem includes the following steps:

• Create a special electromagnetic model container for an electrostatic, magnetostatic, or harmonic analysis.

• Define a geometry and mesh it.

• Assign electromagnetic properties of the material, such as relative permittivity, relative permeability, and conductivity.

• Specify charge or current density within the geometry.

• Specify voltage, magnetic potential, electric or magnetic field on the boundaries.

• Specify absorbing boundary conditions.

• Solve and plot results, such as the resulting electric or magnetic potentials, fields, and flux densities.
