BURLINGTON, Mass., May 18, 2015 — Comsol Inc. has released Comsol Multiphysics software version 5.1, an integrated simulation environment for building multiphysics models and for creating and sharing simulation applications. Engineers can switch between the software's Model Builder and Application Builder and make updates to both the model and app simultaneously. Both are saved in the unified .mph file format. For implementing highly customized commands and operations, the software features simplified code generation, and template codes are provided. Apps can be shared with nonexperts via Comsol Server. It can now operate on multiple computers, allowing computations to be run on a separate machine from where the app is launched. The upgrade also introduces enhancements for add-on products. Ready-to-use parametric geometric components are now available to use with any module, and a library of dedicated parts have been created for the microfluidics, mixer, ray optics and structural mechanics modules. A new optical materials database has been added for the ray optics and wave optics modules.
