How to Use State Variables in COMSOL Multiphysics®
As of COMSOL Multiphysics® version 5.5, you can use state variables to track the state of your model; affect other fields, such as material properties; and even implement hysteresis.
Modeling the Scattering of Light Off of an Object on a Substrate
A common modeling scenario in wave electromagnetics: computing the scattering of light off of a structure patterned on top of a uniform dielectric substrate.
Building a Magnetohydrodynamic Multiphysics Model in COMSOL®
Magnetohydrodynamic models call for fluid dynamics and electromagnetics couplings. To do so, you can set up bidirectional couplings between all physics equations or building a simplified model.
Using Discontinuous Meshes for Conjugate Heat Transfer Modeling
You can use different discontinuous meshes in neighboring domains in COMSOL Multiphysics®. This capability comes in handy, particularly when modeling conjugate heat transfer problems.
3 Approaches to Modeling Moving Loads and Constraints in COMSOL®
Learn 3 ways to model moving loads and constraints in COMSOL Multiphysics®: using variables, interpolation functions, and paths imported from CAD geometries.
How to Model Conductors in Time-Varying Magnetic Fields
You can use the AC/DC Module to perform frequency-domain simulations for conductors in time-varying magnetic fields by describing the skin effect.
Common Pitfalls in Electrothermal Analysis
In the real world, electromagnetic heating often involves a nonlinear temperature. Learn some common pitfalls that occur during this type of electrothermal analysis and how to overcome them.
Should I Fillet the Geometry in My Electromagnetic Heating Analysis?
You want to analyze electromagnetic heating around sharp corners in your simulation. Do you round off the corners by adding a fillet? We go over cases where you should and shouldn’t do so.
