I just discovered this forum. I am studying a method for incompressible flow, which of course has applications in electromagnetics. I have applied the method to several EM problems, and in fact have a good part of a paper written, but I haven't done much in the past year. I have published papers and have posted several fluid applications written in Matlab on the CFD wiki archive.

I don't see much activity here. Is there a more active EM forum somewhere?

I am retired and work alone, so I have no one to discuss issues with.

I'm doing some electro- and magnetostatic calculations with OpenFOAMs finite volume method. In general, I believe that FDTD methods are more suited for Maxwell equations, however, for multiphysics tasks it may be preferable to stick to one method though.

I'm not sure where you can find a community for this topic unfortunately.

Edit: While on topic, do you know the steadiness conditions for the magnetic vector potential at surfaces between areas with different permeabilities? I know that A_orthogonal and A_parallel/mu should be steady, but what about the derivatives?
