This past fall, the COMSOL Group of companies organized an international series of Multiphysics Meetings where users of COMSOL Multiphysics and related products gathered to exchange experiences and refine their mathematical-modeling skills. The COMSOL Conference CD contains the full proceedings from all of these meetings along with presentation slides and even ready-to-run model files that were discussed. The COMSOL Conference CD is available at no charge to interested individuals upon request at www.comsol.com/conference2005/cd.
“During these conferences, held in Boston, Stockholm, Oslo, Frankfurt, Birmingham (UK), Paris, and Milan, attendees had access to an enormous wealth of knowledge about the applications of multiphysics modeling,” comments COMSOL VP of Marketing Bernt Nilsson. “By offering a no-cost CD compilation of all the material published at the conferences, we provide the research and engineering communities with a valuable multiphysics reference work. Including the speakers’ contact information, it offers anyone an opportunity to connect with the presenters and learn from their work. In addition, anyone not yet involved in multiphysics modeling can get an excellent overview of all the areas in which modeling can play a crucial role and see the success that their fellow researchers and engineers have enjoyed.”
The COMSOL Conference CD contains all 229 technical papers (in PDF format) that were published in the proceedings in various countries; many of those from Europe were given in English. Just some of the topical areas of discussion include:
chemical engineering and fluid dynamics
modeling in the classroom.
PowerPoint presentations accompany many of the user presentations on the CD, making it possible to quickly grasp the purpose and benefits of the projects. Another highlight consists of 30 COMSOL Multiphysics models upon which the presenters’ work is based, models that others can include in their own simulation projects. In addition, this digital compilation holds the PowerPoint presentations from more than 40 keynote/plenary talks including those from several COMSOL executives discussing our latest products—including the Reaction Engineering Lab—and a future outlook for COMSOL developments.
About the COMSOL Product Line
COMSOL Multiphysics is an industry-leading scientific software package for the modeling and simulation of any physics-based system. A particular strength is its ability to simultaneously account for interdependent, coupled physics, known in the industry as multiphysics phenomena. Researchers working in dedicated disciplines can also find add-on modules that have special user interfaces and optimized application setups; currently available are the Chemical Engineering, Earth Science, Electromagnetics, Heat Transfer, MEMS, and Structural Mechanics Modules. The package is available for the Windows, Linux, Solaris, and the Macintosh operating systems. A related product, the Reaction Engineering Lab, allows users to investigate reaction kinetics for ideal and spatially varying systems. In addition, COMSOL Script is an interactive scripting language that works both as a general-purpose scientific computational tool and that also runs within COMSOL Multiphysics to automate tasks such as batch simulations and create customized user interfaces.
