Introduction to COMSOL Multiphysics®

This introductory demonstration will show you the fundamental workflow of the COMSOL Multiphysics® modeling environment. We will cover all of the key modeling steps, including geometry creation, setting up physics, meshing, solving, and postprocessing.

News for COMSOL Multiphysics® and COMSOL Server™ 5.3a

We will review the major news for version 5.3a of the COMSOL® software, for both core functionality such as geometry, mesh, and postprocessing features as well as various physics-specific updates.

New features include the ability to copy and paste physics interfaces and components between different models, improved model methods, the addition of shape memory alloys, a new boundary element method for acoustics and magnetostatics modeling, new features for model reduction, and more.
