COMSOL Inc., developer of the award-winning COMSOL Multiphysics simulation software, today announced the availability of COMSOL News 2011, the newest edition of its annual technical computing journal. COMSOL News 2011 was developed in collaboration with lead users of COMSOL. These users have contributed by submitting over 20 inspiring articles sharing their experience in simulation-driven engineering. COMSOL News 2011 is available immediately as a complimentary PDF download and in hard-copy format.
Many of the articles in COMSOL News 2011 were selected from over 950 user presentations and papers delivered at the series of COMSOL User Conferences held throughout the world last fall. “The COMSOL Conference has emerged as the number one technical conference for practitioners of multiphysics simulation in new product design and next-generation technology research,” says Lindsay Faria, Corporate Marketing Manager of COMSOL. “COMSOL News 2011 provides a brief, yet elegant, snapshot of the ongoing work that engineers, scientists, and researchers in industry and academia shared with their colleagues last fall.”
COMSOL News 2011 gives readers a broad overview of how COMSOL Multiphysics is used to model and simulate engineering problems in industries as diverse as automotive, aerospace, energy, hydrology, imaging, medical, and plastics. Articles range from reducing the noise of wind turbines to using Multiphysics to research microscopic magnetic fields leading to advanced medical instruments for the treatment of cardiovascular, sensory and neurological disorders.
Authors and participants in COMSOL News 2011 work for such institutions as BAM German Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing, CEA-MINATEC, Ford, HCL Technologies India, Massachusetts General Hospital, MIT, Riello Burners Italy, Ritsumeikan University Japan, and Swiss Center for Electronics and Microtechnology. Simulating lithium-ion batteries for greener Ford vehicles, modeling safer Teflon manufacturing processes, and extending both the lifetime and stability of offshore oil platforms are among 20 featured articles found in COMSOL News 2011.
Additionally, this 64-page magazine also offers tips and tricks for current COMSOL Multiphysics users as well as a special guest commentary from Chris Randles, the President and Chief Executive Officer of SpaceClaim Corporation. In his commentary, Randles discusses how a 3D direct modeling system such as SpaceClaim Engineer can help engineers prepare models for multiphysics modeling by eliminating the cumbersome geometry manipulation processes inherent with traditional computer-aided design software while simultaneously fostering a collaborative engineering environment.
“COMSOL News 2011 is a highly-readable technical resource for anyone interested in learning more about technological innovation and how multiphysics expedites the process,” adds Faria. “It's an excellent complement to our open online archive of more than 1,800 fully documented modeling projects.”
