BioGeoWave Technologies has nearly 40 years of experience in software simulation projects. Since 2010, this also includes extensive multiphysics simulation and modeling work with COMSOL Multiphysics.

Overall, our projects have been conducted within electrical engineering, drying, electromagnetic heating, thawing, food processing, biomedical engineering, and subsurface flow, as well as agricultural, biological, and geophysical applications. Many of these are comprised of cross-discipline technology applications including multiphysics modeling and property characterizations involving electromagnetics, heat and mass transfer, fluid flow, and other physical properties of materials.
