COMSOL Multiphysics® 5.0 Named NASA Tech Briefs’ Readers’ Choice Product of the Year

COMSOL Multiphysics® 5.0 with the new Application Builder is recognized as a product that brings the most practical value and technical merit to readers of NTB.

BURLINGTON, MA (February 10, 2015) COMSOL, Inc., the leading provider of multiphysics simulation and analysis software, today announces that the COMSOL Multiphysics® software version 5.0 has been named 2014 Product of the Year by readers of NASA Tech Briefs.

COMSOL Multiphysics 5.0 brings an innovative application design environment to the engineering community: The Application Builder and COMSOL Server™ license. The Application Builder provides engineers with the tools needed to build an easy-to-use simulation application based on their COMSOL Multiphysics model. Any COMSOL model can be turned into an app with its own interface using the tools provided with the Application Builder desktop environment. With COMSOL Server™, apps can be shared with customers and colleagues using a free Windows client or web browser.

COMSOL Multiphysics 5.0 was named Product of the Month in December by NASA Tech Briefs editorial staff. In January 2015, NTB readers were asked to choose one of the 12 Products of the Month as the most significant new product introduced to the engineering community.

“The significance of this award is that the winners are selected solely by the readers; the buyers and users of these products. The winners are the best of the best — the products that design engineers feel will help them do their jobs better and more efficiently,” said Linda Bell, Editorial Director of NASA Tech Briefs.

“Our goal with the release of COMSOL Multiphysics 5.0 and the Application Builder is to bring multiphysics simulation to a much wider audience than was previously possible,” says Svante Littmarck, CEO and President of the COMSOL Group. “Being chosen as NASA Tech Briefs Product of the Year demonstrates that the Application Builder is being recognized as an innovative and game-changing product for the engineering community. We are greatly honored that NTB readers chose COMSOL 5.0 as one of the most significant products of the year.”
