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.
An API for Java and LiveLink for MATLAB may be used to control the software externally. An App 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.
The eponymous company COMSOL developing the software was founded in 1986 by Svante Littmarck and Farhad Saeidi in Stockholm, Sweden.
Several modules are available for COMSOL, categorized according to the applications areas Electrical, Mechanical, Fluid, Acoustic, Chemical, Multipurpose, and Interfacing.
