When you are new to the COMSOL Multiphysics® simulation software, it is important to have access to resources that can help you get started with the software quickly. The installation and introduction manuals provide useful details, covering the basics of the modeling environment as well as some more advanced topics. Starting with version 5.2, the Simplified Chinese installation option now offers access to a number of these manuals in versions that are translated into Chinese.

Today, guest blogger Mehrzad Tabatabaian discusses turning COMSOL Multiphysics models into apps, a point of focus in his book COMSOL5 for Engineers. Accurately predicting the behavior of objects and systems is a key element in any design workflow. Computational tools like COMSOL Multiphysics help to ensure this, enabling simulation experts to easily test different designs. Now, with the Application Builder, these experts can turn their models into easy-to-use apps that can be accessed by a larger technical community.

When the loudspeaker was first introduced, it fascinated listeners by translating electricity into amplified sound. Since that time, the device continues to be recognized for its innovative properties, while undergoing improvements and finding new uses. On this day, which marks 100 years since the first public display of a loudspeaker, we explore the device’s rich history and simulation’s role in advancing its design.

In the science and engineering community, models are vital to design and development. But can models be protected by copyright law? Establishing the level of creativity required for copyright protection is relatively easy in comparison to patent law, which requires inventions to be novel and non-obvious. Additionally, copyright law does not require the secrecy measures needed to qualify for trade secret protection. We explore the appeal of using copyright to protect models and the functionality built around them.

Last month, researchers and developers gathered in Chennai, India for the 7th annual Conference on Automotive R&D Trends. Emphasizing the importance of research and development in India’s automotive industry, this year’s theme was “Towards Strengthening Indian Automotive R&D”. At the conference, our Managing Director Vineet Dravid presented a new approach to product development. He was joined by David Neihguk of Mahindra & Mahindra, who discussed the role of COMSOL Multiphysics in optimizing their muffler design.

When first introduced, simulation was utilized by just a handful of R&D specialists. Today, a wide community uses simulation to design products, enabling organizations to address complex designs and optimize their workflows. Now, simulation-led design is made even more accessible thanks to several recent developments.

What is the relation between the extremely popular band One Direction, quantum mechanics, and cosmology? Stephen Hawking may just have explained this relation in one of his recent talks at the Sydney Opera House. It has to do with the prediction of parallel universes, where we, in an infinite number of worlds, could find worlds that are almost identical to ours but with all possible permutations and differences, much like the 410-page books in The Library of Babel by Borges.
