COMSOL Now

Jenna Craig | May 8, 2012

A new version of COMSOL Multiphysics will be released very soon, and in conjunction with this we are holding webinars to go over what exactly is new in COMSOL Multiphysics version 4.3. For our friends located in Europe, the free webinar will be conducted live on June 21st. The speaker of this online event, Phil Kinnane, will introduce you to three brand new products and go over the wide array of tools that are available in this new version.

This week we ran a series of three one-day courses. The first two days centered on modeling batteries and fuel cells, as well as electrodeposition applications. Today, the course looked at simulating corrosion. This was a great opportunity for a number of our customers and other interested people to try out the new Corrosion Module.

A couple of our COMSOL users that I previously blogged about in “How we Realized we were Good at Enabling Users to Model Cloaking” have been selected as one of the Journal of Optics ‘TOP 25’ articles for 2011. These were chosen based on being the most downloaded, cited, or of highest quality ranking.

COMSOL allows the researcher or designer to couple many physics phenomena at once and create multiphysics models. Being able to bring in every applicable aspect of physics into a virtual model is what makes the simulation “real” enough to accurately represent what the actual product would look and act like.

So far users of COMSOL Multiphysics have fared pretty well in the Create the Future contest. For example, last year’s Grand Prize was awarded to Monika Weber and researchers with Yale University, CT, for their “αScreen Fast and Cheap Bacteria Detection”. This sensor can help cheaply detect bacteria in food fast and eliminate the risk of infection and spreading food-borne diseases.

Multiphysics simulation means breakthroughs and increased productivity. It comes as no surprise then that within the COMSOL user community (that’s you!) amazing new products are being launched at a higher pace than ever before. In recognition of this fact and in celebration of product innovation in general, we have joined forces with Nordson EFD and the Tech Briefs Media Group as principal sponsors of the Create the Future Design Contest 2012.

We at COMSOL are diligent with testing all parts of the modeling and simulation experience. Our partners, AMD, are helpful in this procedure by providing their latest graphics technology for us to certify. This latest addition has been the AMD FirePro™ V3900 graphics card, a powerful entry-level accelerator card for projects ranging from low to moderate complexity. Its great feature is that it can support up to five display devices.
