How to Use Model Methods to Accelerate Your COMSOL® Workflow

Walter Frei June 22, 2017

Do you ever find yourself performing the same modeling operations over and over again in each new model file that you work with? Or do you work with colleagues who send you model files that you have to manually add physics and features to? If so, you can greatly accelerate your workflow by using model methods, new in version 5.3 of the COMSOL Multiphysics® software. Let’s find out how.

The COMSOL Multiphysics® software helps you find solutions to your engineering questions, but you may also have questions on using the simulation software itself. Therefore, we’ve created resources to guide your modeling process. In this blog post, we discuss three help tools that you can access in COMSOL Multiphysics: the Help window, Documentation window, and Application Library. We also link to a video that shows you how to access and use these tools at the end of this post.

Do you find yourself creating new models in the COMSOL Multiphysics® software faster than you can launch them interactively in the COMSOL Desktop® environment? If having to wait for your current model to finish solving before launching the next one does not sound appealing, it’s time to learn how to run your simulations in Batch mode from the command line. As it turns out, this is quite a simple process.

Simulation is a powerful tool that enables you to obtain a holistic view of your design’s performance. While the physics you are studying may be complex, the environment in which you run such studies doesn’t have to be. This rationale has served as the logic behind continuously optimizing the user interface (UI) in the COMSOL Multiphysics® software for ease-of-use. Several tutorial videos, three of which are highlighted here, guide you on how to navigate the environment and utilize its tools.

Around this time last year, we introduced a new ribbon user interface to COMSOL Multiphysics. Now, with version 5.0, we are introducing many improvements that make COMSOL Multiphysics more intuitive to use. Updates include a change in color scheme, additional multiphysics interfaces, a materials tab, global materials, and Material Sweeps and Function Sweeps.

To make it easier and more transparent to define models involving multiple physics phenomena in COMSOL, a separate Multiphysics node has been added as a new feature in COMSOL version 4.4. The Multiphysics node gives you control over the couplings for thermal stress and electromagnetic thermal effects involved in your models. Future versions will include further multiphysics couplings through the Multiphysics node in addition to the multiphysics couplings methods already available since previous versions.

Each COMSOL release aims to create a better modeling experience for our users, usually in the form of new add-on modules and new functionality in existing products. COMSOL 4.4 brings you all that, but it also includes another significant change: a brand new user interface (UI). The new UI contains a ribbon at the top of the interface (for our Windows® users) to make your modeling easier and faster. The ribbon gives you direct access to the functions you would […]

Over the past few years, Microsoft® has introduced updates to the user interface (UI) for its Office programs. Microsoft® Office 2013 is all about being touch-screen friendly, and Microsoft® Office 2007 brought the Ribbon interface. The Microsoft® Ribbon was designed to be easier to use than the nested drop-down menus of yore. These days, it’s what we’re used to seeing when working with their tools — and we’ve come to appreciate the ease-of-use, guidance, and clear workflow overview it provides. […]
