COMSOL Releases Multiphysics 5.1

This version has updates to Application Builder and a host of simulation functionalities.

COMSOL has released Multiphysics 5.1. This version, according to the company, enhances user experience and productivity by offering model setup and application design in a single interface. 5.1 also includes updates to the Application Builder, improved layouts for app design and LiveLink for Excel.

Highlights of the new features include:

  • Tighter integration between the Model Builder and Application Builder,
  • Face detection for imported meshes, surface simplification in mesh-to-geometry conversion and domain and boundary selections for NASTRAN Property ID Numbers tools.
  • A new matrix-free domain-decomposition solver.
  • A new multiphysics interface for hygroscopic swelling has been added in the Structural Mechanics module.
There have also been added models and functionalities for fluid, chemical and multipurpose simulation.

“COMSOL today defined the standard for user experience in simulation application design by integrating model building and app design tools into a single environment,” said Svante Littmarck, CEO of COMSOL Inc. “COMSOL 5.1 delivers additional features that provide our customers with highly productive tools to build and share their simulation applications with users everywhere. The demo applications include self-contained documentation and showcase many useful features. You can run these applications to explore how to email simulation reports, create animations, perform optimizations and parameter estimation, as well as import experimental data and handle tables. All the demo apps are available for you to edit, and forms, form objects, and methods can be copied from these apps and used as a starting point for your own application designs.”
