Comsol, a leader in multiphysics simulation software, has announced the release of major new additions to the COMSOL simulation platform. The latest version of Comsol Multiphysics, version 4.3b, introduces five new application-specific modules and expanded modeling and analysis tools. Release highlights are available at www.uk.comsol.com/4.3b
With the introduction of the five new modules, users in key application areas from major industries now have access to the new modeling and simulation tools offered by Comsol.
Included in the new modules are:
• Multibody dynamics module – Provides users with the ability to analyze the assembly of rigid and flexible bodies. Transitional and rotational displacements, as well as locking, can be simulated for a variety of joint types, including prismatic, hinge, cylindrical, screw, planar, ball, slot, and reduced slot joints.
• Wave optics module – Allows users to analyse electromagnetic wave propagation in optically large structures, such as optical fibers and sensors, bidirectional couplers, plasmonic devices, metamaterials, laser beam propagation, and non-linear optical components.
