Modeling a Distributed Model of Thermal Microactuator on a Cluster

Model ID: 16943


A model of a thermal microactuator requires the coupled simulation of electric current conduction with heat generation, heat conduction, and structural stresses and strains due to thermal expansion.

The purpose of this model is to demonstrate how to access the cluster computing functionality in COMSOL from COMSOL Desktop and use it to submit a batch job to a cluster through a job scheduler. The model takes advantage of the distributed parameter functionality in COMSOL. The model also demonstrates how you can measure the speedup of COMSOL on your cluster.

This model was built using the following:
