Tips & Tricks

As promised, I’m back to introduce to you the second tutorial video in the new postprocessing blog series. This video covers the basics of creating plots, including some useful ways you can tweak and customize your plots. For example, have you ever wanted to improve the resolution of a plot, add or modify titles and axis labels, standardize the color bars over multiple graphs in one plot group, modify a deformation plot’s scaling, or view multiple plots in the COMSOL […]

It has been some time since we’ve had the “Tips & Tricks” column in COMSOL News. Many people have asked me for tips on how to use COMSOL Multiphysics, so I figured I would share some with you here on the blog. The first in this new series of tips and tricks explains how you can create high-resolution images of COMSOL models.

Version 4.3 was released just a few weeks ago, and it has already generated a lot of buzz. With three new products and many enhancements, there is a lot to sink your teeth into. Not the least of these enhancements are the “little things” — small usability improvements that can make life a lot easier (and modeling more efficient) for COMSOL users.

As most skilled COMSOL users, I am sure you know that you are not limited to just selecting what is in our drop-down lists. Say that you have invented your own measure of structural stress. You want it to be equal to the quadratic mean of the Tresca and von Mises stresses. Go to Plot Parameters to find out what these predefined stresses are called (tresca_smsld and mises_smsld if you are modeling in 3D with the Structural Mechanics Module). Now […]

Cluster computing is making its way to the engineering community. This is certainly true for users of COMSOL. Here is some great news: Users of COMSOL Multiphysics on floating network licenses will be able to deploy their simulations distributed on any number of nodes — without any additional licensing cost.

COMSOL Multiphysics version 4.0 is just days away from seeing the light of the day in the shape of a Beta prerelease. We can’t wait to get it out to you. Without telling too much – I don’t want to spoil the fun – you’re in for a nice surprise. Directly when you start COMSOL you’re into the work flow, we call it the COMSOL Desktop. It’s an entirely new user interface with tools that guide you through the steps […]

Did you know that it is easy to set up certain kinds of inverse problems in COMSOL real quick with the aid of the Global Equations feature? Imagine this: instead of asking “how hot will the house get if I fire the boiler with three logs per hour”, you ask “I want the living room to be 72 °F, how many logs per hour should I feed the boiler with?”.

This week I will talk about CAD import. Many times, the first task a new user of COMSOL is up to is to lay their hands on the CAD models of the design team. After all, COMSOL handles the analysis, which needs to be closely tied with the design process. Ideally, design and analysis is integrated in one single process. There are different ways to marry the CAD models with the analysis. File based import is maybe the most common […]
