The latest industrial vehicles – as with other areas of automotive design – often involve high-tech components composite components to assisted driving or vehicle automation systems which require significantly more complex simulation. Automotive design tasks frequently deal with contradictory requirements of this kind: “make something stronger while making it lighter,” explained Sjodin. “Simulations here can be invaluable since modern tools can be setup to sweep over a large range of cases, or to automatically optimize for a certain objective.”
Today COMSOL announced updates to their software solutions for multiphysics modeling, simulation, app design and deployment. The latest update of the COMSOL software features major performance increases and the release of the Rotordynamics Module, which is now available as an add-on product to the Structural Mechanics Module.
The 11th annual COMSOL Conference has issued its Call for Papers. As the world’s largest conference on multiphysics simulation, the event takes place Oct. 7-9 in Boston.
COMSOL has released COMSOL Multiphysics software version 5.0, featuring product updates, three new add-on products, and the new Application Builder.
