Solving complicated modelsSolution Number: 1267 Versions: All versions
I have a large, complicated, model that is not solving, or taking a long time to solve. What should I do? There are a number of reasons why a model may not be solving, or solving very slowly. This article describes ...
Memory leak in the Fortran Runtime LibrariesSolution Number: 1264 Versions: 5.4
When running running a model that uses the MUMPS solver repeatedly on my multicore processor, I notice a small gradual increase in Memory Consumption. Please make sure that your COMSOL Multiphysics 5.4 installation is ...
The MUMPS solver crashes or hangs during Cluster SimulationSolution Number: 1263 Versions: 5.4
When running large models on a cluster with COMSOL Multiphysics 5.4, the MUMPS solver hangs or crashes. This issue has been fixed in Update 4 for COMSOL Multiphysics 5.4. Please update your COMSOL installation to ...
Improving convergence of transient modelsSolution Number: 1262 Versions: All versions
Transient models involve computing a solution that varies over time. To do so, the software begins with the given initial conditions and computes the evolution of the unknowns using one of several different time ...
