JCMsuite is based on advanced mathematical methods and technologies from computer science.
This results in exceptionally short computation times, compact data space requirements and highly robust software.

Important features are:

  • Vectorial finite elements of polynomial order 1 – 9
  • Exact 2D and 3D geometry modelling using unstructured meshes
  • Self-adaptive grid refinement relying on residual-based error estimation 
  • Combination of different mesh refinement levels and polynomial ansatz functions of varying degree
  • 1D, 2D, 3D cartesian coordinates (with periodic, transparent, and/or fixed boundary conditions), cylindrically symmetric and twisted coordinate systems
  • Rigorous treatment of periodic and transparent boundaries 
  • Automatic, adaptive parameter settings for transparent boundaries using adaptive perfectly matched layer method, PML
  • Automatic computation of first- and higher-order parameter derivatives
  • Domain-decomposition (DD) methods for efficient simulations of large 3D geometries
  • Reduced basis methods (RBM) for an online-offline decomposition of parameterized simulations
  • Complex and anisotropic material permittivity and permeability tensors
  • MATLAB®-, Python, C-interfacing
  • Various post-processes for field-exports (e.g., cartesian and simplicial grids), field transformations (e.g., Poynting vector evaluation) and functional evaluations (e.g., Fourier transformation) on the solution fields
  • Comprehensive tutorials and parameter reference in both pdf and html format
