As many of you may already know, a vast number of multiphysics simulations are based on or have something to do with fluid flow. Oftentimes, convective processes can actually play a bigger part than diffusion processes, for example in chemical reactions or heat flux. A fluid can for instance be set in motion by changing its temperature. We have a pretty neat example of a glass filled with cold water that is placed on a heat source (as seen below). […]

I noticed a lot of activity when I posted the question concerning “FEM vs FVM” in a previous blog post, so I started looking into it a bit. A lot of people went to the COMSOL Discussion Forum thread on the matter, from the blog, which got me thinking that this must be a hot topic out there. How disappointed I was when I typed ‘FEM vs FVM’ into Google and saw that there wasn’t much to sink your teeth […]

I’ve just been working with Roger Pryor, as he gathers material for his new book. Roger wrote a book called “Multiphysics Modeling using COMSOL” a couple of years ago that turned into a good seller. Now he has released “Multiphysics Modeling using COMSOL Multiphysics v.4”. This is the first book I am aware of that showcases Version 4.

I was just reading a news report from the Gustavus Adolphus College in Minnesota. There, Dr. Huber is running a program where seniors perform experiments on cantilever beams and their responses to acoustic waves, both in the air and under water.

I was looking through our event schedule online and noticed that there were a lot more training courses planned this year than in the past. Then I realized that there is also a new feature on that page where you can download a PDF of the course brochure. Intrigued by these changes, I wanted to find out more.

I can’t say exactly how you ended up on the COMSOL web site. I can however make an educated guess: chances are you stumbled on to an entry in the COMSOL community. Most of our visitors do. Based on our Google stats the Community web section is the most visited section of the site.

Reading Fanny’s blog post from a couple of days back, I’m also getting excited about the COMSOL Conference. The big news for me is the introduction of Panel Discussions. We’ve noticed that although the User Presentations are interesting, there’s very little time to ask the presenters questions before the next one has to get up there to present. On the other hand, we have all appreciated the Keynote presentations, which are often more general in their content, but also don’t […]
