COMSOL Conference Showcases Next-Gen Multiphysics

Attendees of the COMSOL Conference in Boston this week were treated to a sneak preview future developments of the popular multiphysics software from Svante Littmarck, President and CEO of COMSOL. The conference featured a robust technical program with approximately 300 attendees. “Our customers are at the forefront of innovation behind the products that will shape our future,” says Littmarck. “We work tirelessly to support their efforts by increasing the modeling power of the COMSOL software and by making collaboration among simulation experts and their colleagues the core of everything we do. This annual event is our opportunity to connect and exchange knowledge within the COMSOL community on multiphysics modeling.”

Driving Change with Multiphysics

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.”

“Through multiscale simulation of the circulatory system, it is now possible to model this surgery and optimize it using the state of the art optimization techniques. In-silico analysis has allowed us to test new surgical design without posing any risk to patient’s life. I will show the outcome of this study, which is a novel surgical option that may revolutionize current clinical practice.”

Best Practices – Large Scale Multiphysics

Frank Ham from Cascade Technologies presented this talk at the Stanford HPC Conference. “A spin-off of the Center for Turbulence Research at Stanford University, Cascade Technologies grew out of a need to bridge between fundamental research from institutions like Stanford University and its application in industries. In a continual push to improve the operability and performance of combustion devices, high-fidelity simulation methods for turbulent combustion are emerging as critical elements in the design process. Multiphysics based methodologies can accurately predict mixing, study flame structure and stability, and even predict product and pollutant concentrations at design and off-design conditions.”

COMSOL Speeds Multiphysics Modeling & Simulation

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.

Cobham Updates Opera Mulitphysics Software

Cobham has updated their Opera electromagnetic and multiphysics design software. According to Cobham, the Version 18 release of this finite element analysis and simulation software incorporates numerous enhancements to boost functionality, speed and accuracy, while further improving ease of use.

Call for Papers: COMSOL Conference 2015

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.
