The numerical simulation allows the treatment of complicated phenomena and gives insight into areas which are inaccessible to physical measurements. Nowaday's industry and research are inconceivable without numerical simulation, and it spreads to more and more domains, thanks to the progress of computer technologies.

The object of the research in our laboratory is the modeling and simulation of electromagnetic phenomena, through numerical solution of Maxwell's equations. Research and development also takes place in related areas, such as elastodynamics, acoustics or thermodynamics. We work in all development stages of a simulation solution, from the development of numerical algorithms, through graphical representation, to concrete applications.

Members of the TEMF staff , as well as the whole laboratory team as a whole, received, for their valuable research contributions in electromagnetics and for the development of new simulation methods, internationally-recognized research prizes:
