COMSOL and Simpleware have been collaborating for some years now. Together we offer a solution for our users to easily and efficiently include their images as geometries or meshes in COMSOL Multiphysics, for them to then be modeled. We asked our colleague at Simpleware, Ingrid Weber, to tell us about what’s new in this version that is going to be presented at their upcoming webinar.

As a Premier Elite Partner with Intel, COMSOL is able to test its ability utilizing multi-core systems using Intel’s Concurrency Checker. This was run on COMSOL Multiphysics Version 4.2a and I’ve just uploaded the report on Intel’s website.

One of the things I have noticed from the FEM vs FVM debate is that when you want to couple other physics to fluid flow, then FEM is the best method to do this with. It’s fitting then that my colleague in our Palo Alto office, John Dunec, ran a webinar this week on Multiphysics Flow Simulations with COMSOL.

I was reading Fanny’s blog post about the call for papers and it reminded me of my duties as program chair of the COMSOL Conference 2012 that will be held in Milan, Italy. I had gotten distracted. At the time I was working on a two-phase non-isothermal flow simulation and I was lost in my train of thought… “How to correctly represent volume forces? Is it ok to use the Boussinesq approximation? Is this mesh fine enough? Am I using […]

I have just been working with getting an ad together for Medical Design Briefs. I wanted to show the readers of this magazine how a new feature in V. 4.2a works. It’s called “Image to Material”, and I wanted to also share it here.

I bet you share that great feeling most COMSOL users get – the excitement when presenting your latest simulation results to your colleagues! Or is it envy? In either case multiphysics modeling work tends to inspire.

As many of you may already know, a vast number of multiphysics simulations are based on or have something to do with fluid flow. Oftentimes, convective processes can actually play a bigger part than diffusion processes, for example in chemical reactions or heat flux. A fluid can for instance be set in motion by changing its temperature. We have a pretty neat example of a glass filled with cold water that is placed on a heat source (as seen below). […]

I noticed a lot of activity when I posted the question concerning “FEM vs FVM” in a previous blog post, so I started looking into it a bit. A lot of people went to the COMSOL Discussion Forum thread on the matter, from the blog, which got me thinking that this must be a hot topic out there. How disappointed I was when I typed ‘FEM vs FVM’ into Google and saw that there wasn’t much to sink your teeth […]

I’ve just been working with Roger Pryor, as he gathers material for his new book. Roger wrote a book called “Multiphysics Modeling using COMSOL” a couple of years ago that turned into a good seller. Now he has released “Multiphysics Modeling using COMSOL Multiphysics v.4”. This is the first book I am aware of that showcases Version 4.
