Setup and Meshing of Infinite Elements, Perfectly Matched Layers, and Absorbing LayersSolution Number: 1272 Versions: All versions
I am setting up a model where I want to include a region of infinite extent. How should such situations be modeled and meshed? #Overview There are three options for modeling a domain that is meant to represent a ...
COMSOL crashes on startup after updating to Debian 10Solution Number: 1266 Versions: 5.4
After updating my Debian installation from Debian 9 to Debian 10, COMSOL crashes on startup. This issue has been observed by some Debian users when updating from Debian 9 to Debian 10. There are two possible solutions ...
How can I see the equations COMSOL is defining? How do I implement a user-defined Multiphysics coupling?Solution Number: 1259 Versions: All versions
I would like to define my own customized coupling between two existing physics interfaces. How can I do this? How can I find the names of the variables that I will need to use? How can I see the names of all ...
Solving electromagnetic heating models with high-frequency loadsSolution Number: 1257 Versions: All versions
I am solving a Multiphysics problem involving electromagnetics and heat transfer. The electromagnetic fields are varying at a constant frequency, and the period is very short compared to the timespan over which the ...
Reducing the amount of solution data stored in a modelSolution Number: 1255 Versions: All versions
My models contain a lot of solution data, and I do not want my file sizes to get too large, it takes a lot of disk space. What can I do to reduce file size? Will this reduce the time it takes to solve the model? File ...
