A really exciting project has just been finished here at COMSOL, which was great to be a part of. The next issue of IEEE Spectrum will feature a special insert titled: Multiphysics Simulation. Sponsored by COMSOL, this is a special section that contains nine articles about simulation — a must read for all subscribers to IEEE Spectrum as well as others interested in modeling.

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.
