COMSOL Releases Multiphysics Simulation 2016

COMSOL_newlogoBURLINGTON, MA, Oct 26, 2016 – COMSOL, Inc. the leading provider of multiphysics modeling, simulation, and application design and deployment software, announced that the latest edition of Multiphysics Simulation is now available and may be downloaded at The 2016 edition features articles on a range of topics, including 5G simulation apps, implantable medical devices, organic LEDs, and high efficiency photonic switches.


“Multiphysics simulation tools are being used across many industries with great success,” comments Bernt Nilsson, senior VP of Marketing with COMSOL, Inc. “The Multiphysics Simulation magazine is a compilation of a dozen outstanding product and research projects. In every case, numerical simulation has a major impact on the outcome for organizations that are now expanding the use of simulation to much larger groups of users.”

This edition of Multiphysics Simulation shares a number of stories about how simulation experts are communicating their simulation work with colleagues and customers. A few highlights:

  • Researchers at GrafTech developed a detailed model of graphite heat spreaders and turned it into a simulation app for their sales team.
  • Within Konica Minolta researchers are using multiphysics simulation to increase light output and energy efficiency in organic LED (OLED) systems.
  • The team at Huawei is hard at work designing energy efficient photonic switches to support growing network traffic.

Other articles highlight how industry leaders have employed simulation driven product development practices to stay ahead of the competition. Researchers at St. Jude Medical are using multiphysics simulation to enhance the performance and safety of wireless implantable devices for heart disease patients. The team at ArcelorMittal is perfecting the process for laser welding within the automotive industry.
