Many of you have upgraded to COMSOL version 4.3 by now and thanks, in part, to user feedback we have been able to make updates to fix bugs and other issues in this version of our software. Last week we released the second new product update for COMSOL 4.3.

It’s finally conference season – my favorite time of year. There is nothing quite like the rush of registrants coming in, the scheduling of minicourses to fulfill each attendee’s request for training, and finalizing the exhibit and poster session floorplan. Except actually attending the conference. Nothing beats that, and here’s why you’re invited to the COMSOL Conference:

The end of August marks the end of summer here in New England. Already nostalgic and unwilling to let the season go, I decided to look into some “beach physics”. In May we released a new solar radiation feature in our Heat Transfer Module that will be helpful in many solar applications — including how to avoid overheating on the beach, apparently. Here’s how engineers can stay cool on the beach.

There are some special events that we particularly care about and put tons of work into here in COMSOL, and these are our annual conferences. The events keep on expanding and this year everything will be even bigger and better! The conference will be held in Boston, MA October 3-5, Milan, Italy October 10-12, and in Bangalore, India November 2-3. We are very excited about the high quality and large volume of abstracts submitted for the COMSOL conference so far.

COMSOL has been running webinars together with our media partners for a few years now. This great technology has allowed us and them to showcase some interesting research and modeling applications, usually focused around multiphysics, and bring it directly to the engineer’s computer screen. Now a new partner has come on board, and we are thrilled to be collaborating with Laser Focus World. To kick this off, we will run a webinar on multiphysics and what it actually is, particularly […]

It’s been a busy summer for innovators. An all-time high of 950 submissions have been entered into the Create the Future Design Contest with a chance to win a Grand Prize of $20,000, computers, and most importantly, the honor. This is also a great opportunity for contestants to get recognition among their peers — submissions come from a record 65 countries this year.

COMSOL has had a great relationship with Emeritus Professor Bruce Finlayson of the University of Washington. I first saw him back in 2002 at an American Institute of Chemical Engineering (AIChE) meeting where he gave a presentation on the use of modeling in chemical engineering education. As a former President of AIChE and with a resumé covering some of the leading research and industrial advances within chemical engineering, I was quite intrigued by him taking the time and effort to […]

When it gets dark, you flick on the lights. If you were to model this simple example, you would need to take all forms of heat transfer within consideration; convection, conduction, and radiation are all at play when a light bulb is flicked on.

During a recent Heat Transfer Simulations webinar we demonstrated some good examples using “everyday life” type scenarios. Heat transfer occurs in many situations indeed: potatoes cooking in the microwave, hot coffee in a cup, and on the beach, with solar radiation. And most of us have at some point boiled water to make pasta for dinner. Heat transfer is at work then too.
