Engineering Readers’ Choice — Gold Award: COMSOL Multiphysics
The COMSOL Multiphysics simulation environment is a modeling package for the simulation of any physical process that can be described with partial differential equations (PDEs). The entire product family now runs on Microsoft’s Vista operating system, as well as on Intel-based Macs. A new Material Library simplifies the accurate specification of properties for more than 2500 materials. Also, a CHEMKIN file-import facility makes it possible to read data in a format standard in the chemical industry for gas-phase reactions, combustion and atmospheric chemistry. Finally, all-new repair and defeaturing functions during the import of CAD enable users to refine geometry representations in order to model complex designs.
