Comsol has become a valuable part of our design and decision making process. The exceptional flexibility and access to the physics and solvers in Comsol has allowed us to have deeper understanding on thermomechanical solutions. Technic and Comsol have always been quick and helpful to resolve any issues and provide helpful advice on their products.
At Scion we use COMSOL Multiphysics to understand energy processes, such as the interplay of non-linear solid mechanics and heat & mass transfer during biomass compaction, to design new or more efficient processes.
We use COMSOL Multiphysics to design the customised muffler. With it, we can simulate the insertion loss at different spectrum with different muffler designs.
Analysing tunnels, excavations, slope stability, and retaining structures requires nonlinear material models tailored for geotechnical applications. The Geomechanics Module is an add-on to the Structural Mechanics Module that includes built-in material models for modelling deformation, plasticity, creep, and failure in soils, concrete, and rock. The module also includes standard nonlinear material models to describe metal plasticity through the von Mises and Tresca criteria.
In addition to the built-in material models, you can enter user-defined yield functions and input your own mathematical expressions of the field variables, stress and strain invariants, and derived quantities using equation-based modelling. You can also incorporate in situ stresses and define material properties that are dependent on another variable, such as a computed temperature field or water pressure.
To accurately account for real-world effects and behaviour in your geotechnical analyses, you can include multiphysics effects by combining the features and functionality in the Geomechanics Module with other modules in the COMSOL® product suite. For instance, you can model porous media flow, poroelasticity, solute transport, and heat transfer with the Subsurface Flow Module.
The Application Builder, included in COMSOL Multiphysics®, enables you to build simulation applications that further simplify the simulation workflow by enabling you to restrict the inputs and control the outputs of your model so that your colleagues can run their own analyses. Working with specific soil, rock, and concrete models, this functionality is especially useful for testing how different materials affect a simulation.
With specialised applications, you can easily change a design parameter, such as a geometrical dimension, material property, or boundary load, and test it as many times as you need without having to know the inner workings of the software. You can use applications to run your own tests more quickly or distribute applications to other members of your team to run their own tests, further freeing up your time and resources for other projects.
The process is simple:
You can expand the capabilities of simulation throughout your team, organisation, classroom, or customer base by building and using simulation applications.
