COMSOL has released major additions to its simulation platform. The latest version of COMSOL Multiphysics, version 4.3b, features five new application-specific modules and expanded modeling and analysis tools.

The Multibody Dynamics Module provides users with the ability to analyse the assembly of rigid and flexible bodies. Transitional and rotational displacements, as well as locking, can be simulated for a variety of joint types, including prismatic, hinge, cylindrical, screw, planar, ball, slot and reduced slot joints.

The Wave Optics Module allows users to analyse electromagnetic wave propagation in optically large structures such as optical fibers and sensors, bidirectional couplers, plasmonic devices, metamaterials, laser beam propagation and non-linear optical components.

The Molecular Flow Module offers the capability to simulate rarefied gas flow in complex CAD geometries of vacuum systems. This includes such applications as mass spectrometers, semiconductor processing, satellite technology, particle accelerators, shale gas exploration and flow in nanoporous materials.

The Semiconductor Module enables the detailed analysis of semiconductor device operations at the fundamental physics level allowing for the modeling of PN junctions, bipolar transistors, MOSFETs, MESFETs, thyristors and Schottky diodes.

The Electrochemistry Module delivers tailored user interfaces available for electroanalysis, electrolysis, and electrodialysis. Typical applications include: glucose sensors, gas sensors, chlor-alkali electrolysis, and desalination of seawater, waste water treatment and control of electrochemical reactions in biomedical implants.

Additional features delivered with the COMSOL product suite include enhancements to CAD importing and geometry handling, meshing, physics, solvers, results and productivity tools that offer increased usability and performance throughout the product development process. COMSOL Multiphysics 4.3b brings tremendous enhancements to features in existing modules, thus augmenting simulation speed and the capabilities of the entire product suite, stated the company.

COMSOL Multiphysics 4.3b is now available worldwide for download. On-subscription license holders of the RF Module, Structural Mechanics Module, or Microfluidics Module will receive the Wave Optics Module, Multibody Dynamics Module, or Molecular Flow Module, respectively, and for free.
