Users of Comsol Multiphysics present their work
Comsol Multiphysics is a scientific-software environment for the modeling and simulation of any physics-based system; a particular strength is its ability to account for multiphysics phenomena
The latest edition of the Comsol News includes a number of stories that illustrate innovative uses of multiphysics modeling software to help researchers and scientists understand processes, create virtual prototypes, and speed their products to market at less expense.
Here is a snapshot of just some of the contents:.
Instrumentation - superior levels of accuracy achieved in mass-flow meters by running realtime Navier-Stokes equations on an embedded processor.
Subatomic research - creating the coolest neutrons in the world.
Nanotechnology - revealing the secrets of the growth mechanism of a nanowire.
Waveguides - new methods bring terahertz rays to practical applications.
The magazine is available free of charge via Comsol's website .
Comsol Multiphysics is a scientific-software environment for the modeling and simulation of any physics-based system.
A particular strength is its ability to account for multiphysics phenomena.
Optional modules add discipline-specific tools for chemical engineering, earth science, electromagnetics, heat transfer, Mems and structural mechanics.
Other products include Comsol Reaction Engineering Lab, which allows users to model reacting systems, and Comsol Script - a Matlab-compatible programming language that works both as a general-purpose scientific computational tool and provides a textual based interface to Comsol Multiphysics's models.
Comsol products are available for the Windows, Linux, Solaris, and the Macintosh operating systems.
Comsol has upgraded the add-on acoustics module for Comsol Multiphysics to enable virtual prototyping of microphones, mobile devices, piezo-acoustic transducers, mufflers, and particulate filters.
Comsol has released a Batteries and Fuel Cells Module for the Comsol Multiphysics modelling and simulation environment.
Comsol's certified consultant, Altasim Technologies, has joined with inventor Tom Kruer, of Gizmotech, to develop a mosquito trap for use in developing countries.
28 August 2009 - Comsol is to hold its fifth annual conference on 8-10 October 2009 at the Boston Marriott Newton in the US.
More than 2000 scientists, engineers, researchers and practitioners of multiphysics modeling are expected to attend the COMSOL Conference from 9-11 October at the Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel.
