COMSOL Multiphysics
Ten Years of Unlimited Simulation Capabilities!

In 1998 COMSOL Multiphysics® made its debut as the first commercial environment to enable scientists, engineers, and researchers to solve any system of coupled physics phenomena in the same simulation. Ever since, users have leveraged the insights of multiphysics modeling and simulation to work smarter.

In this issue of COMSOL News, you’ll find 15 examples of how your colleagues use COMSOL to take on today’s technological challenges. We have a report froma team at NASA Marshall Space Flight Center that’s modeling next-generation life support systems for longduration space habitation such as a lunar outpost and a roundtrip to Mars. Next, you can learn how multiphysics helps France’s Roc- Tool, which specializes in licensing its rapid molding technologies for the composites industry, customize molds for its clients’ diverse needs.We also have two interesting examples of multiphysics in the consumer products industry: electric shavers from Philips and a full-color, photo-quality direct thermal printer from ZINK Imaging.
