COMSOL has officially released Multiphysics 5.2, with the updated Application Builder and Server. This version, according to the company, delivers new features for improved stability, robustness and faster execution.
Caching capabilities are available for faster app startup times, and administrators can have specific apps start running when a user logs into the Server.
The new apps in the COMSOL Application Library are for industries such as water treatment, thermoelectric cooling, heat exchangers, touchscreen design, magnetic prospecting, piezoacoustic transducers, muffler design, MEMS sensors and pressure vessels.
A new Mesh Parts function has been added to make it easier to import surface and volume meshes for use in geometry building. Annotation plots let users display customized text in 2D and 3D plots. The company notes that it has also added a host of user-requested features.
“With version 5.2 we ship about 50 apps demonstrating the depth and power of the Application Builder and the COMSOL Server,” said Svante Littmarck, CEO of COMSOL. “These apps are meant to provide COMSOL users with examples that can be easily inspected, edited, and used as a starting point for their own applications. We had a lot of fun building these apps and love the new Application Builder functionality! For example, if we take a look at the Mixer app, which ships with the Mixer Module, we are presented with a sophisticated application that can be used to simulate almost any type of mixer without requiring expertise in differential equations or CFD (computational fluid dynamics). This takes modeling and simulation to a whole new level.”
