Optimising and Verifying Real-World Devices and Processes with Simulation

Engineers and scientists use the COMSOL Multiphysics® software to simulate designs, devices, and processes in all fields of engineering, manufacturing, and scientific research.

COMSOL Multiphysics® is a simulation platform that encompasses all of the steps in the modelling workflow — from defining geometries, material properties, and the physics that describe specific phenomena to solving and post-processing models for producing accurate and trustworthy results.

To create models for use in specialised application areas or engineering fields, you can augment COMSOL Multiphysics® with any combination of add-on modules from the product suite. The interfacing products make it possible to also integrate simulation with other engineering and mathematical software used in product and process design. When you have developed a model, you can even convert it into a simulation application with a dedicated user interface, which can be designed for a very specific use by people beyond the R&D department.

One Software Environment, Any Engineering Field

Multiphysics Modelling Provides Accurate Results

Often, the key to successful engineering simulations is developing experimentally validated models that replace the use of experiments and prototypes alone, and give a deeper understanding of the studied design or process. Compared to running experimental methods or testing prototypes, modelling allows for quicker and often more efficient and accurate optimisation of processes and devices.

As a user of COMSOL Multiphysics®, you are free from the restrictive nature generally associated with simulation software and have complete control over all aspects of your model. You can also be creative in a way that is impossible or a lot harder with traditional approaches, thanks to the ability to couple any number of physics phenomena together and input user-defined physics descriptions, with associated equations and expressions, directly in the graphical user interface (GUI).

Accurate multiphysics models consider a wide range of possible operating conditions and physical effects. This makes it possible to use models for understanding, designing, and optimising processes and devices for realistic operating conditions.

Follow a Consistent Modelling Workflow

Modelling with COMSOL Multiphysics® means being able to move between simulating electromagnetics, structural mechanics, acoustics, fluid flow, heat transfer, and chemical reactions phenomena, or any other physics modelled by a system of PDEs, in one software environment. You can also combine physics phenomena from these areas in a single model. The COMSOL Desktop® user interface provides you with a complete simulation environment and a consistent modelling workflow from start to finish, regardless of the type of design or process you wish to analyse and develop.

Close the Gaps Between Analysis, Design, and Production by Building Simulation Applications

In many organizations, a small group of numerical simulation experts is servicing a much larger group of people working in product development, production, or as students studying physics phenomena and processes. To make it possible for this small group to service the much larger group, the COMSOL Multiphysics® software contains functionality for building simulation applications. The Application Builder allows simulation experts to create intuitive and very specific user interfaces for their otherwise general computer models — ready-to-use custom applications.

A physics model can serve as a starting point for several different applications, each with its own restricted input and output options relevant for a specific task. Applications can include user documentation, checks for “inputs within bounds”, and predefined reports at the click of a button. For intermittent usage, applications can be run through COMSOL Multiphysics®. For regular usage, applications can be deployed with the addition of the COMSOL Server™ or COMSOL Compiler™ products. Both products allow you to share your finished applications with your design teams, manufacturing departments, process operators, test laboratories, customers, and clients worldwide. COMSOL Server™ is an application management tool with which you can safely and securely deploy applications, either through your internal network or across the web. COMSOL Compiler™ is an add-on to COMSOL Multiphysics® that enables you to create standalone applications, which can be run on a desktop or laptop computer without COMSOL Multiphysics® or COMSOL Server™.

Every business and every simulation need is different.
