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.

Defining a Multiphysics Model, Part 1: The Automatic Approach

November 6, 2018

There are 3 approaches to setting up a multiphysics model in the COMSOL® software: Fully automatic, manual with predefined couplings, and manual with user-defined couplings. Here, we discuss #1.
