How to Use Model Methods to Accelerate Your COMSOL® Workflow

June 22, 2017

Methods aren’t just for enhancing simulation applications built in the Application Builder. In fact, you can create methods to streamline and automate repetitive modeling operations.

How to Model the Optical Properties of Rough Surfaces

June 6, 2017

We develop a computational model for calculating the optical properties of rough surfaces, such as incident light on a dielectric material with random variations in height and thickness.

How to Create a Randomized Geometry Using Model Methods

June 5, 2017

What does cheese have to do with setting up a COMSOL Multiphysics® model? Here, we use the random holes in a piece of Swiss cheese to demonstrate creating randomized geometries with methods.
