The module lets users study multiphysics effects including interactions between electromagnetic phenomena with heat transfer and structural mechanics. For example, users can see how heating changes the frequency response of a microwave filter. Users can also see how close designs get to safety margins in high-power microwave waveguides and switches. The module provides a multiphysics coupling for microwave heating to make such analyses easier. Users no longer have to determine the physics, and then struggle to decide which boundaries couple them together.
