Today, we will introduce the concept of structural stiffness and find out how we can compute the stiffness of a linear elastic structure subjected only to mechanical loading. In particular, we will explore how it can be computed and interpreted in different modeling space dimensions (0D and 1D) and which factors affect the stiffness of a structure.

From an installation point of view, the main difference between a COMSOL CPU-Locked Single User (CPU) and Floating Network License (FNL) is how they are installed and managed. However, the FNL not only offers every single benefit of a CPU license, but also enables several additional features while greatly enhancing your workflow, allowing COMSOL Multiphysics to scale with your company’s growth.

Modeling in COMSOL Multiphysics involves a lot of tasks, such as choosing the right physics, defining the geometry, and setting up boundary conditions and domain settings. Additionally, material properties have to be defined for the materials included in the model. Such material data may come from the Material Library, but it often has to be obtained experimentally or from literature and imported into COMSOL Multiphysics.

To keep up with today’s fast-paced development cycles, R&D engineers and scientists need efficient tools to provide answers quickly and free them from routine tasks. COMSOL Multiphysics® has built-in features like parametric sweeps to increase simulation productivity. In addition to graphical modeling, COMSOL offers an Application Programming Interface (API) that you can use to automate any repetitive modeling step. Here’s how to get started with the COMSOL API for use with Java®.

The Leaning Tower of Pisa is regarded as one of the most famous landmarks in the world, although geotechnical engineers probably view it more as a construction gaffe. To prevent such a leaning fate, it could be useful to run an analysis in order to predict possible subsidence due to poroelastic deformation.

One thing we haven’t talked much about so far in the Hybrid Modeling blog series is what speedup we can expect when adding more resources to our computations. Today, we consider some theoretical investigations that explain the limitations in parallel computing. We will also show you how to use the COMSOL software’s Batch Sweeps option, which is a built-in, embarrassingly parallel functionality for improving performance when you reach these limits.
