COMSOL releases COMSOL Multiphysics version 5.4

COMSOL announces the latest version of COMSOL Multiphysics Version 5.4, which in addition to two new products provides performance improvements and additional modeling tools. The latest version of COMSOL Multiphysics features COMSOL Compiler, giving specialists the freedom to distribute their simulation applications through executable files, and the Composite Materials Module for layered structures analysis.

COMSOL Compiler allows you to create standalone COMSOL Multiphysics applications. Compiled applications are bundled with COMSOL Runtime – no COMSOL Multiphysics or COMSOL Server license required to run. You can distribute such applications with no further license fees.

By combining the Composite Materials Module with new functionality for layered shells available in the Heat Transfer Module and the AC/DC Module, users can perform multiphysics analysis such as Joule heating with thermal expansion.

Multiphysics version 5.4 comes with numerous productivity improvements such as the ability to use multiple parameter sets in a model, including parametric sweeping over multiple parameter sets. Furthermore, users can now organize the Model Builder nodes into groups and assign custom coloring schemes to geometry models.

Among the various performance improvements is the updated memory allocation scheme that gives several times faster computations in the Windows 7 and 10 operating systems for computers with more than 8 processor cores.

The AC/DC Module features a new part library with fully parametric and ready-to-use coils and magnetic cores. The CFD Module comes with large eddy simulations (LES) and significantly updated modeling tools for multiphase flow.

COMSOL Multiphysics, COMSOL Server, and COMSOL Compiler software products are supported on the following operating systems: Windows, Linux, and macOS. The Application Builder tool is supported in the Windows operating system.
