How to Convert Point Cloud Data to Surfaces and Solids

January 28, 2021

Sometimes, the only data you have before starting an analysis project is a set of points (also known as a point cloud). Did you know that a point cloud can be converted into a model geometry?

Using Global Equations to Introduce Fully Coupled Goal Seeking

January 20, 2021

Learn how to introduce a goal-seeking equation, combined with a fully coupled approach, to solve a nonlinear model. (Follow-up to an earlier blog post on goal seeking with a segregated solver.)

Introducing Goal Seeking into the Segregated Solver

January 19, 2021

Did you know that you can adjust a model input to achieve a desired output in your nonlinear problems? The process involves implementing a global equation into the segregated solver.

Fractals, Noise, and State Variables

January 5, 2021

Ever notice how the leaves of a fern seem to show a self-repeating pattern? Fractals are objects that exhibit some form of self-similarity at different scales. Learn how to model them here.

Using Layout Templates for Simulation App Design

December 21, 2020

Layout templates enable you to streamline your app design workflow in the Application Builder, while still leaving room to implement your own functionality.

The North Pole Models Product Distribution Challenges for the Holidays

December 18, 2020

Today, a guest blogger from the North Pole discusses using simulation to find out if his boss will be able to fit down all of the chimneys this holiday season.

Keynote Video: Rapid Prototyping for Sonar Systems

December 15, 2020

Engineers at Northrop Grumman follow a 4-part rapid prototyping design phase: Design, manufacturing a prototype, testing and design verification, and manufacturing of the final design.

How to Run COMSOL Multiphysics® from the Command Line

December 9, 2020

Did you know that you can run repeated variations of the same COMSOL Multiphysics® model file from the command line — and automatically export data?
