Veryst Combines Material Testing and Simulation for Reliable Results

March 11, 2019

Simulation helps companies develop the best designs. Understanding material behavior plays a key role in generating accurate simulations. Here’s how Veryst combines testing and FSI simulation.

How to Activate Material in Simulations of Manufacturing Processes

November 7, 2018

Do you model manufacturing processes such as welding or additive manufacturing? You can activate or deactivate a material in a material deposition simulation using specialized functionality.

How to Perform Multimaterial Optimization in COMSOL Multiphysics®

March 30, 2018

Does a tuning fork sound better when made out of aluminum instead of copper or steel? In COMSOL Multiphysics®, you can perform an optimization study for multiple materials to find out.

How to Generate Randomized Inhomogeneous Material Data

June 20, 2017

Did you know there is a way to take randomized material data with specified statistical properties determined by a spectral density distribution and use it to generate and visualize results?

Efficiently Assign Materials in Your COMSOL Multiphysics® Model

September 20, 2016

Here, we go over 3 methods for efficiently assigning materials in your COMSOL Multiphysics® models. The included tutorial videos show step-by-step instructions for each related feature.

Thermal Modeling of Phase-Change Materials with Hysteresis

March 24, 2016

Hysteresis occurs when the melting temperature of a material is different from the solidification temperature. We demonstrate the thermal modeling of such a material here.

Tracking Material Damage with the Previous Solution Operator

July 21, 2015

We demonstrate how to use the Previous Solution operator to track material damage in your simulation, using an example of “baking off” of a thin coating on a wafer heated by a laser.

Modeling Laser-Material Interactions in COMSOL Multiphysics

June 22, 2015

When it comes to modeling laser-material interactions and heating, different modeling techniques are appropriate for different problems. We go over a few examples here >>
