Boost Sales and Build Stronger Relationships with the Deployment of Simulation Apps

Rick Beyerle, Pierre Hatte, GrafTech, USA

Proofs of concept are often the deciding factor in gaining the trust of a customer and generating a sale. But for high-tech companies like GrafTech, a leading producer of carbon and graphite for industrial applications, proofs of concept aren’t necessarily straightforward. With the Application Builder, available in COMSOL Multiphysics®, simulation specialists can convert their work into a simulation app, hiding the complexity of their mathematical model while presenting users with an easy-to-use interface and reporting capabilities. Their app, called SpreaderCalc, enables sales engineers to provide prospective customers with immediate proof-of-concept simulations and performance predictions within hours.

Using a local installation of the COMSOL Server™ product, GrafTech gives colleagues worldwide access to apps over the company’s intranet. The SpreaderCalc app simulates heat transfer in graphite foils used to cool consumer electronics.
