Comsol, Inc., a leading global provider of engineering simulation software, today announced the release of COMSOL Multiphysics® 4.4, the latest version of its powerful platform for the modeling and simulation of electrical, mechanical, fluid, and chemical applications.

New COMSOL Desktop Interface for Windows® Offers Enhanced User Experience
A ribbon design has been introduced to the COMSOL Desktop® environment, when run on Windows® platforms, to provide easier navigation and an enhanced user experience. By grouping commands and displaying them as needed, the ribbon makes it easier to find and use the tools available to let you get your work done faster.
The COMSOL Desktop brings several additional workflow improvements, such as a one-click select feature that enables faster selections in the graphics window. Using this feature, users can now hover over a boundary or domain to highlight it, and then select it with a single click. Another noteworthy feature is the new auto-complete search function, which allows you to quickly find the postprocessing variables you need among the many that are created when working with multiphysics models.

New Multiphysics Coupling Capability with the Multiphysics Node
A completely new Multiphysics node is now available in the model tree, enabling streamlined setup of multiphysics models. It allows users to easily expand upon combinations of single-physics interfaces by choosing from a list of relevant multiphysics couplings.

The Mixer Module
The new Mixer Module, an add-on to the CFD Module, was designed specifically for the analysis of stirred mixers and reactors used in the manufacturing of pharmaceuticals, food, fine chemical, and consumer products. With its dedicated features for simulating mixer and impeller designs, as well as concentrations, velocities, and temperature profiles, the Mixer Module is ideal for accurately modeling a variety of industrial processes. The Mixer Module provides features for the simulation of turbulent and laminar flow, Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids, free surfaces, non-isothermal flow, and reacting flow.

New Functionalities in COMSOL 4.4
COMSOL Multiphysics 4.4 also introduces a variety of enhancements to existing functionalities of the software. “COMSOL is committed to providing reliable and intuitive simulation tools that support creativity and save precious development time,” says Svante Littmarck, CEO of COMSOL, Inc. “
