creating a new material

Blair Kirkpatrick
Hi All,

I want to make a portion of my model out of a particular material which isn't included in the built in library. How can I create a new material and add it to the library?

Many thanks,

B

Hi

check the doc:

add a "new" material in the model, fill in the variables needed, and those known (even if not needed in the model), then save it into a user defined material that comes at the end of the material DB for next time.

note: the default location is in your user directory under ".comsol...", so if you keep it there it might disappear if you erase ".comsol", its perhaps worth to save it else ware or make regularly a backup-copy

Good luck

Hello All,
Please I need to add a Ni80Fe20 Permalloy in my COMSOL model and I cannot realize this material combination!
Can someone help me?!
