Comsol , Inc. today redefines the engineering simulation market with the release of Comsol Multiphysics® software version 5.0. With the Application Builder, the power and accuracy of Comsol Multiphysics is now accessible to everyone through the use of applications. Comsol users can now build applications for use by engineering and manufacturing departments, expanding accessibility to their expertise and to cutting-edge simulation solutions.
Introducing the Application Builder
The Application Builder empowers the design process by allowing engineers to make available an easy-to-use application based on their Comsol Multiphysics model. Included with the Windows® operating system version of Comsol Multiphysics® 5.0, the Application Builder provides all the tools needed to build and run simulation apps. “The Application Builder is our vision for the future of simulation,” says Svante Littmarck, CEO and President of the Comsol Group. “It brings the expertise of engineering specialists working in research and development to a greater majority of people, revolutionizing the product design process by allowing the power of multiphysics simulation to drive productivity and innovation. This is achieved by supplying those involved in the design and manufacturing process across all engineering disciplines with apps created by simulation experts.”
Three New Add-on Products in the Product Suite
– For engineers working in application areas including building science, solar energy, and interferometers, the Ray Optics Module is an industry-leading simulation tool for analyzing systems in which the electromagnetic wavelength is much smaller than the smallest geometric detail in the model.
– The Design Module expands the available toolset of CAD functionalities in the Comsol product suite. The module includes the following 3D CAD operations: loft, fillet, chamfer, midsurface, and thicken, in addition to CAD import and geometry repair functionality.
– Additionally, Comsol is proud to offer LiveLink™ for Revit®, which allows Comsol® users to interface with the building information modeling software from Autodesk®.
New Features and Functionalities in Comsol 5.0
Version 5.0 also introduces numerous enhancements to the existing functionalities of Comsol Multiphysics. New features and updates have been added to the entire product suite, which includes over 25 application-specific modules for simulating any physics in electrical, mechanical, fluid, and chemical disciplines.
