INTEGRATED’s utilization of BEM means that only “active” regions require discretization. Fields can be calculated anywhere else in the “world”.

Utilization of BEM also allows for the modeling of true geometric curvature rather than straight line approximations required by other methods.

  • Models with thin layers and extreme aspect ratios are handled more easily
  • Fields are calculated by integration, effectively smoothing out discretization and round-off error

Our software is the only clear choice for applications involving the modeling of space around the device: that is what we call “large open regions”.
