Designed by COMSOL to redefine the engineering simulation market, the release of COMSOL Multiphysics version 5.0 with Application Builder makes the power and accuracy of the software accessible to everyone through the use of applications. COMSOL users can now build applications for use by engineering and manufacturing departments, expanding accessibility to their expertise and to cutting-edge simulation solutions.
The Application Builder empowers the design process by allowing engineers to make available an easy-to-use application based on their COMSOL Multiphysics model. Provided with the Windows version of COMSOL Multiphysics 5.0, the Application Builder offers all the tools needed to build and run simulation apps. Any COMSOL Multiphysics model can be turned into an application with its own interface using the tools provided with the Application Builder desktop environment. Using the Form Editor, the user interface layout can be designed, while the Methods Editor is used for implementing customised commands. Based on the project at hand, engineering experts can now easily build a specialised application to share with their colleagues and customers that includes only the parameters relevant to the design of a specific device or product.
Svante Littmarck, CEO and President of the COMSOL Group comments that the Application Builder brings the expertise of engineering specialists working in research and development to a greater majority of people, revolutionising the product design process by allowing the power of multiphysics simulation to drive productivity and innovation. This is achieved by supplying those involved in the design and manufacturing process across all engineering disciplines with apps created by simulation experts.
Many COMSOL users have welcomed the Application Builder; Massimo Bechis, Modelling and Simulation Specialist at Prysmian comments that by building applications for their colleagues, they would save 30-40% of the time currently spent on calculations for them.
