Interfacing

Recently, Fanny blogged about spreadsheets and how they are used in engineering. She mentioned that they are great for collating material properties and other experimental results, and for then using these in COMSOL models. The simulation results from these models can in turn be compared to the original data, and help calibrate material properties and optimize the design. With the release of COMSOL Multiphysics 4.3a, COMSOL has now made it much easier to perform these tasks and extend your modeling […]

We’ve noticed that a lot of our customers use spreadsheets, such as Excel®, as part of the modeling process. They use them for storing material property and other data, such as from experiments or other information about workflow associated with their engineering project, and then import this data into COMSOL Multiphysics®. Spreadsheets are also the forum for taking in results from COMSOL software and using this to compare, optimize and verify these material properties. Let’s delve deeper into how spreadsheets […]

In short, electronic computer-aided design (ECAD) is typically used to design and develop electronic systems. Although it’s a mere letter away from spelling out “CAD”, there’s actually more to the story than appending the word “electronic” to “CAD”. So what is ECAD and why is it used in Finite Element Analysis (FEA)?

Earlier this month COMSOL sponsored the 3-day PlanetPTC event in Orlando, Florida. This was our first time as silver sponsors at PlanetPTC, and my colleagues came back in good spirits. Not long ago, Creo™ 2.0 was introduced, and PlanetPTC provided a great opportunity to get filled in on the latest news PTC has to offer in Creo™ as well as other products. A number of the presentations focused on news and improvements in Creo™ 2.0 (naturally), and some showcased “best […]

The LiveLink™ for SpaceClaim® interface allows you to transfer a 3D geometry CAD model from SpaceClaim® to COMSOL Multiphysics. Updates to the model will synchronize seemlessly between SpaceClaim® and COMSOL Multiphysics. This brings you the fusion of direct modeling with multiphysics simulation in a tightly integrated environment, enabling optimal designs and collaboration across CAD and CAE teams. Learn more about COMSOL LiveLink™ for SpaceClaim®.

This week I will talk about CAD import. Many times, the first task a new user of COMSOL is up to is to lay their hands on the CAD models of the design team. After all, COMSOL handles the analysis, which needs to be closely tied with the design process. Ideally, design and analysis is integrated in one single process. There are different ways to marry the CAD models with the analysis. File based import is maybe the most common […]
