COMSOL Multiphysics

COMSOL Multiphysics

Description

The COMSOL Multiphysics® simulation environment facilitates all steps in the modeling process—defining your geometry, specifying your physics, meshing, solving and then post-processing your results.

Model set up is quick, thanks to a number of predefined modeling interfaces for applications ranging from fluid flow and heat transfer to structural mechanics and electromagnetic analyses. Material properties, source terms and boundary conditions can all be arbitrary functions of the dependent variables.


Available

Version on CSC's Servers

Taito: 5.4, 5.3a and 5.3


Usage

The recommend method to use COMSOL at CSC is via the NoMachine client on taito-shellThe terms of use of this software allow its use for only the affiliates (staff and students) of Finnish higher education institutions.

After logging in to Taito, type

module load comsol 
then
comsol
If you want to use an older version, for example 5.2a, then type
module load comsol/53a
Sometimes, you may encounter errors relating to OpenGL rendering during the start-up. The solution is to force COMSOL to start with software rendering using command
comsol -3drend sw
