COMSOL Multiphysics version 4.3 launched

COMSOL has announced the 4.3 release of COMSOL Multiphysics, an advanced software environment for modelling and simulating physics-based systems.

New capabilities include three new discipline-specific add-on modules, fast and powerful meshing, a new 'Double Dogleg' solver for mechanical contact and highly nonlinear simulations and numerous user-inspired enhancements.

The Nonlinear Structural Materials module augments the mechanical capabilities of the structural mechanics and MEMS modules by adding nonlinear material models, while the Pipe Flow module is optimised to enable efficient simulations of 1D fluid flow, heat and mass transfer, hydraulic transients and acoustics.

The Corrosion module offers specialised user interfaces to model the electrochemical processes that lead to corrosion. According to COMSOL, engineers who want to mitigate these processes can gain insight into how structures might corrode under certain conditions and how structures can be protected. The module includes the physics required to model galvanic, pitting, and crevice corrosion, as well as cathodic and anodic protection.

Version 4.3 also has a user interface within the AC/DC module for modelling 3D rotating machinery. This is targeted at users working on applications for generators, brushless motors, radial and axial flux machinery and brushed DC electric motors.
