In this Joule heating effects problem we will demonstrate how to model and simulate the heating of a fuse in a circuit board using the new COMSOL Multiphysics version 4. We will solve how hot a fuse gets in the circuit board when high voltage and current is passed through the fuse.

As most skilled COMSOL users, I am sure you know that you are not limited to just selecting what is in our drop-down lists. Say that you have invented your own measure of structural stress. You want it to be equal to the quadratic mean of the Tresca and von Mises stresses. Go to Plot Parameters to find out what these predefined stresses are called (tresca_smsld and mises_smsld if you are modeling in 3D with the Structural Mechanics Module). Now […]

BURLINGTON, MA (November 9, 2009) — More than 700 of the world’s top practitioners of multiphysics simulation recently gathered for the fifth annual COMSOL Conference in October. Complementary events were held in Boston and then Milan, Italy. The next stop for the annual world tour of this conference focused on multiphysics modeling and simulation for engineering and scientific research is Bangalore, India, November 13-14, 2009, followed by additional conferences in Shanghai, Beijing, Tokyo, and other locations.

COMSOL Multiphysics version 4.0 is just days away from seeing the light of the day in the shape of a Beta prerelease. We can’t wait to get it out to you. Without telling too much – I don’t want to spoil the fun – you’re in for a nice surprise. Directly when you start COMSOL you’re into the work flow, we call it the COMSOL Desktop. It’s an entirely new user interface with tools that guide you through the steps […]

Did you know that it is easy to set up certain kinds of inverse problems in COMSOL real quick with the aid of the Global Equations feature? Imagine this: instead of asking “how hot will the house get if I fire the boiler with three logs per hour”, you ask “I want the living room to be 72 °F, how many logs per hour should I feed the boiler with?”.

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 […]
