Multiphysics modeling tools

  • 09-Jan-2018 03:28 EST

COMSOL’s (Burlington, MA) latest release of its COMSOL Multiphysics and COMSOL Server products provides simulation specialists with modeling tools and increased solver performance. From shape memory alloy (SMA) material models to a revolutionary method for capacitively coupled plasma (CCP) simulations and a hybrid boundary element-finite element (BEM-FEM) method for acoustics and acoustic-structure interaction, COMSOL says customers across all industries and physics areas will benefit from new methods and reduced solution times with version 5.3a. General updates include: support for 3Dconnexion; SpaceMouse devices for easier model navigation; a new color table, Cividis, optimized for people with color vision deficiency; option to save plots in models for faster rendering; option to export animations in the WebM video format; parametric models with user-defined functions; and model reduction based on modal analysis and asymptotic waveform evaluation (AWE).

Performance, reliability, and safety assessments performed using predictive capability for electromechanical systems are on the rise, yet no standard exists in the truck and off-highway engineering design industry for representing the degree to which a model has been validated. Such a standard can enable engineers and managers with a tool to assess the maturity of predictive capability itself.
Cooling system performance on the 1500AJP Ultra Boom and other JLG vehicles has been significantly improved through the use of CFD software tools.
