COMSOL Releases Multiphysics Simulation 2017 Magazine

BURLINGTON, MA, Oct 31, 2017 – COMSOL, the leading provider of software solutions for multiphysics modeling and simulation app deployment, is excited to announce that the latest edition of Multiphysics Simulation magazine is now available and may be downloaded at The 2017 edition features how vehicular electrification companies, 5G component manufacturers, and large scientific research groups have all benefitted from using multiphysics simulation tools to tackle the formidable and unique technology challenges they face.

“The adoption of multiphysics simulation throughout companies is accelerating with the introduction of apps,” comments Valerio Marra, director of marketing at COMSOL, Inc. “Simulation experts featured in this magazine report on major productivity gains where simulation is becoming much more powerful and, at the same time, easier to use and deploy.”

This edition of Multiphysics Simulation shares a number of stories about how simulation experts are exploring new concepts and verifying and optimizing designs quickly and inexpensively. A few highlights:

  • The CERN Large Hadron Collider team designed a fault protection device that helped it avoid costly shutdowns of the collider’s cooling system.
  • Manufacturing and consulting company Signal Microwave is producing on-demand connectors for high-speed RF applications to implement 5G technology.
  • The electric car manufacturer Faraday Future used multiphysics simulation to reduce the number of design iterations from 10 to 2.

Other articles highlight how industry leaders have employed simulation-driven product development practices to gain and maintain a competitive advantage in rapidly changing markets. Researchers at Nokia Bells Labs are using multiphysics simulation to capture the behavior of oscillating piezoelectric fans to bring the next generation of consumer electronics to market. Scientists at India’s National Chemistry Laboratory have pinpointed a cost-effective fuel cell that can replace the unreliable and pollutive diesel generators that power India’s telecom towers. The simulation team at the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) in Coventry, UK, built simulation apps for additive manufacturing processes that ensure safety and quality requirements for the aerospace industry are met.
