Comsol Releases Multiphysics Version 5.1
Comsol Multiphysics Version 5.1 lets users combine model setup with application design from within a single interface. Major upgrades to the Application Builder include full integration between the Model Builder and Application Builder, improved layout tools for app design and LiveLink for Excel capabilities in applications. Customers can also run applications on multiple computers with Comsol Server.
The Corrugated Circular Horn Antenna demo app lets the user modify the geometry of an antenna in order to optimize its radiation characteristics and aperture cross-polarization ratio at the frequency of interest. This app is available in the Comsol Multiphysics software.
In Comsol Multiphysics 5.1, the Model Builder and Application Builder are merged into one unified and interactive environment. While building an app, an engineer can switch between the Model Builder and Application Builder and make updates to both the model and app simultaneously. The Application Builder is now accessible directly from the ribbon in Comsol Multiphysics, where the user can simply switch to the app design environment and continue working in just one click. Both models and apps can be saved in the unified .mph file format.
The integration of the Model Builder and Application Builder allows model data to be exchanged between the two tools from within the same environment. For instances where the application designer wishes to implement highly-customized commands and operations, code generation is greatly simplified in version 5.1 and many template codes are provided.
