Liquid & Gas Properties Module Updates

For users of the Liquid & Gas Properties Module, COMSOL Multiphysics® version 6.1 provides faster property evaluations, an easier way to search and add species to a system, and one new tutorial model. Read more about these updates below.

Improved Performance of Property Evaluations

The enhanced performance of property evaluations is noticeable in all property computations, such as density and viscosity, as well as for thermodynamic properties like heat capacity and vapor pressure. Models where a significant part of the solution time is spent performing property evaluations can now be solved in as much as 30% less time. The new CO2 Storage in a Geologic Formation model and the following existing models showcase this improvement:

Improved Functionality for Adding Species to a System

The functionality to search for species in the database and add them to a model has been extended and improved. The species filtered from a search can now be added one at a time using the Enter key. In addition, it is no longer necessary to reset the filter result when a species has been added.

New Tutorial Model

COMSOL Multiphysics® version 6.1 brings one new tutorial model to the Liquid & Gas Properties Module.
