COMSOL has announced the latest release of the COMSOL Multiphysics and COMSOL Server simulation software environment. With hundreds of user-driven features and enhancements, COMSOL software version 5.2a expands electrical, mechanical, fluid, and chemical design and optimization capabilities.
In COMSOL Multiphysics 5.2a, three new solvers deliver faster and more memory-efficient computations:
- The smoothed aggregation algebraic multigrid (SA-AMG) solver is efficient for linear elastic analysis and many other types of analyses. It is very memory conservative, making it possible to run structural assemblies with millions of degrees of freedom on a standard desktop or laptop computer.
- The domain decomposition solver has been optimized for handling large multiphysics models. “
- A new explicit solver based on the discontinuous Galerkin (DG) method for acoustics in the time-domain enables you to perform more realistic simulations for a given memory size than was previously possible.
The complete suite of computational tools provided by COMSOL Multiphysics software and its Application Builder enables you to design and optimize your products and create apps. Simulation apps enable users without any previous experience using simulation software to run the apps. With version 5.2a, designers can build even more dynamic apps where the appearance of the user interface can change during run time, centralize unit handling to better serve teams working across different countries, and include hyperlinks and videos.
