Getting the Most out of Client-Server Mode
When using COMSOL Multiphysics on a Floating Network License, it is possible to use the Client-Server mode of operation to access remote computing resources for solving large models, while still using the graphics card on a local machine to display graphics. This can have some significant advantages, so let’s look at Client-Server mode in more detail.
COMSOL Comes to China, Successful Launch Events for 4.4
Two weeks ago, I had the privilege of visiting our two new offices in China in conjunction with all-day launch events for COMSOL Multiphysics version 4.4. Both events were greatly successful; Shanghai attracted a hundred or so attendees, while Beijing received almost one hundred and fifty.
Multiphysics Simulation: An IEEE Spectrum® Insert Now Available
Each year, electrical and electronic engineers and designers share their groundbreaking work in the IEEE Spectrum® insert, Multiphysics Simulation. In this 2014 edition, top tech companies and research institutions, from around the globe, share their simulation stories. We are excited to announce that you can now read and download the magazine on our website!
Video: Mechanical Analysis Accelerates Time-to-Market
It’s no news that accurate mechanical analysis is key to avoiding product failure and manufacturing issues. What may be new is how you do it. Simulation software offers a modern approach to analyzing mechanical component and system designs. Watch this video to learn how COMSOL Multiphysics enables you to speed up time-to-market and optimize product designs.
Where Can I Find COMSOL Multiphysics Tutorial Models?
There are two main resources for finding COMSOL Multiphysics tutorial models: our online Model Gallery and the Model Library within the software. We also continuously push out model updates that you can download to your Model Library. Here’s your guide to what these resources are and how to use them.
What Kinds of FSI Problems Can COMSOL Multiphysics Solve?
One of the questions we get asked all the time is: “Can I use COMSOL Multiphysics for solving my fluid-structure interactions problems?” Of course the answer is yes, so let’s talk a little about the various fluid-structure interaction (FSI) modeling techniques. Along the way, we will introduce the add-on modules you will need for these various types of analyses.
Added Value of Task Parallelism in Batch Sweeps
One thing we haven’t talked much about so far in the Hybrid Modeling blog series is what speedup we can expect when adding more resources to our computations. Today, we consider some theoretical investigations that explain the limitations in parallel computing. We will also show you how to use the COMSOL software’s Batch Sweeps option, which is a built-in, embarrassingly parallel functionality for improving performance when you reach these limits.
Hybrid Computing: Advantages of Shared and Distributed Memory Combined
Previously in this blog series, my colleague Pär described parallel numerical simulations with COMSOL Multiphysics on shared and distributed memory platforms. Today, we discuss the combination of these two methods: hybrid computing. I will try to shed some light onto the various aspects of hybrid computing and modeling, and show how COMSOL Multiphysics can use hybrid configurations in order to squeeze out the best performance on parallel platforms.
