COMSOL Multiphysics is a cross-platform finite element analysis, solver and multiphysics simulation software. It allows conventional physics-based user interfaces and coupled systems of partial differential equations (PDEs). COMSOL provides an IDE and unified workflow for electrical, mechanical, fluid, acoustics, and chemical applications.

Beside the classical problems that can be addressed with application modules, the core Multiphysics package can be used to solve PDEs in weak form. An API for Java and LiveLink for MATLAB and Autodesk Inventor may be used to control the software externally. An Application Builder can be used to develop independent custom domain-specific simulation applications. Users may use drag-and-drop tools (Form Editor) or programming (Method Editor). COMSOL Server is a distinct software for the management of COMSOL simulation applications in companies. Several modules are available for COMSOL,[1] categorized according to the applications areas of Electrical, Mechanical, Fluid, Acoustic, Chemical, Multipurpose, and Interfacing.
