Tune into this webinar to learn about the particle tracing functionality available in version 5.3 of the COMSOL Multiphysics® software. For users of the Particle Tracing Module, the latest version of COMSOL Multiphysics® includes:

  • New boundary conditions for plane symmetry, sector symmetry, and periodicity
  • A dedicated Rotating Frame feature to compute particle trajectories in rotating frames of reference
  • Options to release particles at random initial positions and with initial velocities following a Lambertian distribution
  • A built-in Thermionic Emission feature to model the emission of electrons from a hot cathode
  • Improved lift and drag forces to accurately model particle motion in pipes and flow channels
  • New Application Library examples
  • Higher-quality particle trajectory plots

During the webinar, you will hear more about this and other exciting news as well as see a live demonstration of the new functionality. You can ask questions throughout the presentation or during the Q&A session at the end.
