Comsol has released the 4.3 version of its Multiphysics software environment for modeling and simulating any physics-based system. Major new capabilities introduced in version 4.3 include three new discipline-specific add-on modules, meshing, a new "double dogleg" solver for mechanical contact and highly nonlinear simulations, and numerous user-inspired enhancements.
Enhancements and upgraded functionality span the entire Comsol product suite. With the debut of three new discipline-specific add-on modules -- the Nonlinear Structural Materials module, the Pipe Flow Module, and the Corrosion Module -- Comsol now offers 30 products for the simulation of multiphysics phenomena. The newest modules expand the Comsol Multiphysics simulation platform with all-new user interfaces that help users solve the unique design challenges in each of these areas.
