COMSOL Inc., the leader in multiphysics simulation software, announced the release of major new additions to the COMSOL simulation platform. The latest version of COMSOL Multiphysics, version 4.3b, introduces five new application-specific modules and expanded modeling and analysis tools. Release highlights are available at www.comsol.com/4.3b.
AC/DC Module sets the stage for simulating and modeling the performance of resistors, capacitors, inductors, coils, motors, and sensors. The AC/DC Module also lets you couple your component-level finite element model to a SPICE model of a complete electrical system.
Modeling in the RF, microwave and optical regimes requires modeling the propagation of electromagnetic waves in and around structures that can be metallic, dielectric, gyromagnetic, or even metamaterials with engineered properties. The RF Module offers you the tools to meet this challenge.
The design and modeling of microscale electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) is a unique engineering discipline. At small length scales, designs must consider the effects of several physical phenomena. The MEMS Module solves problems that couple structural mechanics, microfluidics, and electromagnetics.
The Plasma Module is a specialized tool for modeling non-equilibrium discharges which occur in a wide range of engineering disciplines. The Plasma Module provides tools to add circuit elements directly to a 1D, 2D or 3D model, or import an existing SPICE netlist into the model.
Comsol reveals the CFD module which is tailored for advanced flow simulations. Ready-to-use interfaces let you model laminar and turbulent flows in single or multiple phases. Functionality for treating coupled free and porous media flow, stirred vessels, and fluid structure interaction (FSI) are also included.
Comsol reveals the Batteries & Fuel Cells Module which is a specialized tool designed to model and simulate all types of battery and fuel cell (FC) applications. The Module features tailored general interfaces to study primary, secondary and tertiary current density distributions in electrochemical cells, and specialized interfaces for lithium-ion, nickel-metal hydride and lead-acid battery chemistries.
