COMSOL Helicopter Swashplate
The latest version of COMSOL Multiphysics has been launched and includes new application-specific modules and expanded modelling and analysis tools that the company believes are unique to the industry.
The latest version of COMSOL Multiphysics, version 4.3b, includes new products such as the Multibody Dynamics Module, which analyses assemblies of rigid and flexible bodies; a Wave Optics Module, which simulates electromagnetics wave propagation in optically large structures; and Molecular Flow Modules, which models rarefied flow for vacuum systems.
In addition, the Semiconductor Module facilitates semiconductor device simulations and the new Electrochemistry Module offers model electrolysis.
These new features delivered with the existing COMSOL product suite include enhancements to CAD importing and geometry handling, meshing, solvers, results, physics and productivity tools that offer increased usability and performance throughout the product development process.
Bjorn Sjodin, Vice-President of Product Management at COMSOL, commented: "With the introduction of these five new modules, COMSOL Multiphysics is able to offer a simulation package that is unique in the industry.
"There is no other software out there that offers the same accuracy across such a wide array of disciplines."
COMSOL Multiphysics 4.3b brings "tremendous enhancements" to features in existing modules, augmenting simulation speed and the capabilities of the entire product suite.
COMSOL continues to impact design processes by positively influencing the accuracy and immediacy of analysis results.
Chief Technology Officer at COMSOL Ed Fontes stated: "It is the mission of COMSOL to provide engineers and scientists with the right tools needed to design reliable and safe products."
