Electrostatics using deformed result of solid mechanics
Posted Apr 3, 2013, 12:38 PM EDT Version 4.1 4 Replies
I am new to COMSOL, using version 4.1 to simulate a flexible capacitor. The goal is to have the geometry deformed using a Solid Mechanics simulation (which I have done) then simulate the behaviour of the capacitor in Electrostatics.
I can't work out how to combine the two steps sequentially. Should they be separate Study Steps? If so, how do I pass the deformed mesh from one step to the next?
Thanks for your help!
