Simulation Apps for Accelerated Innovation

Innovating faster and smarter requires effective collaboration, a strong understanding of product behavior, and quick answers during the development cycle. Organizations that use simulation throughout their workflow generally bring better products to market faster. How? By building standalone simulation apps for colleagues to test design variations without involving simulation specialists.

Introducing COMSOL Multiphysics® and COMSOL Compiler™


The COMSOL Multiphysics® software features a consistent user experience across engineering applications. The platform includes the Model Builder for creating models, the Application Builder for building custom simulation apps, and the Model Manager to further support collaboration. The software platform makes it easy to build and maintain your own custom apps and with COMSOL Compiler™, you are just a mouse-click away from compiling them into standalone apps. There is no limit to how many apps you build or who you send them to.
