3D parametered geometry

Michele Guizzetti
Hi,
I have to simulate a 3D cantilever for different thickness values.
Is it possible to create a simulation where I make a thickness sweep or a Matlab script where I can change the thickness value?
Thanks

Hi Michele,

Yes, it is indeed possible to perform geometric parametric sweeps with COMSOL Multiphysics. Most conveniently, with the CAD Import Module's bidirectional interfaces to SolidWorks and Autodesk Inventor you can do this directly in COMSOL's graphical user interface. Alternatively, using the MATLAB interface you can save your COMSOL Multiphysics model (for any thickness value in the range of interest) as a model M-file, and then edit this file to use the thickness as a parameter to sweep over.

Dear Michele,

In this case, I think the better approach is to use COMSOL's built-in ALE technology for parametrization of the geometry. The reason for this is that you are only changing the thickness of the beam, which I hope does not lead to topology changes in the model domain. You can do this directly in the GUI without the use of any external packages.

Below you will find a link with a PowerPoint-file and an mph-file exemplifying how this is done in COMSOL.

Best regards,

Ed

Dear Ed,

I have found your I-beam model to be very helpful, and I have a couple of questions regarding the parametric segregated solver that you outlined in your PowerPoint presentation.

I am trying to apply the moving mesh method from your model to my own. The error that is occurring when I attempt to solve my model is error number 7720: "All variables solved for must be treated in at least one segregated solver step." This message is not very clear to me, and I was wondering if you could shed some light on the subject.

As background information, the model has one subdomain. This subdomain is a cylinder (2D axially symmetric geometry). The model is using three multiphysics application modes. The application modes are Moving Mesh, Convection and Diffusion, and Electrostatics. I would like to parameterize the height of the cylinder.

I have attached my model to this message.

Thanks for your help,

Ian

Dear Ian,

Thank you for comments. The model was done by Bjorn Sjodin at our Boston office.
As you probably know, you are using the segregated solver to solve the problem. The segregated solver divides the solution process into several steps, where different sets of dependent variables are solved in the different steps. You need to have all dependent variables (that you have selected to solve for) represented in the different steps in the "Solver Parameters" dialog.

For example, if you have an application mode with two dependent variables, u and v, and you do the following:

1. Specify in the "Solver Manager", in the "Solve For" tab, that you want to solve for both variables (this is the default behavior)
2. You then select the segregated solver in the "Solver Parameters"

then both u and v need to represented in at least one "Segregated group".

If you only have u in the "Components" edit fields, then COMSOL will send you the error message that you are referring to. In other words, COMSOL tries to tell you (in a cryptic way I have to admit) that it cannot find the solver settings for v.

Best regards,

Ed

The method demonstrated in that model is antiquated. Geometric parametrization has now for years been possible without the use of the ALE method, which is why that model is no longer available on our website.

The Introduction to COMSOL Multiphysics manual, version 5.1, illustrates how to parametrize a COMSOL geometry.
