How to Perform a Sensitivity Analysis in COMSOL Multiphysics®

February 6, 2020

How do the parameters of your design affect its performance? Understanding this relationship is a valuable part of the design process. By performing a sensitivity analysis, you can do just that.

Analyzing the Impact of a Melting Frozen Inclusion

February 4, 2020

One example of the effects of climate change is the melting of permafrost in northern boreal regions. In this blog post, we show an example of a melting frozen inclusion in a porous medium.

Predictive Analytics Capabilities of SmartUQ® for COMSOL®

Calculus of variations, Lagrange multipliers, deforming geometries, and Lagrange polynomials — These are just a few of Joseph-Louis Lagrange’s many contributions to the world of mathematics.

How to Use Topology Optimization Results as Model Geometries

January 24, 2020

Oftentimes, topology optimization is not the last step in your design process. In fact, you can use the results from a topology optimization study as model geometries for your next analysis.

How to Use an Add-In to Convert Images to Geometry Models

January 23, 2020

Did you know that you can draw an image, import it into COMSOL Multiphysics®, and the Image to Curve add-in will create an interpolation curve from a contour plot of the image?
