This module is specialized in the analysis of components and subsystems where it is necessary to evaluate structural deformations.

It also contains special application modes for the modelling of shells, beams and plates.

Application modes in this module solve stationary and dynamic models, and let you perform Eigen frequency, parametric, quasi-static and frequency-response analyses. 3D solid as well as 2D plane stress, plane strain and axis-symmetric analyses allow the specification of Elastoplastic and hyperelastic material laws as well as large deformations. A post processing feature extends the module with the tools required for high and low-cycle fatigue, and multi-axial fatigue based on critical planes methods.

The Structural Mechanics Module works in tandem with Comsol Multiphysics and the other discipline-specific modules to couple structural analysis to any Multiphysics phenomenon.
