Quintessa and COMSOL Multiphysics®

In order to provide the best possible service to our clients, Quintessa recently invested in a licence for COMSOL Multiphysics® and a number of add-on modules.  The capabilities of Quintessa's in-house multiphysics code QPAC and COMSOL Multiphysics® are complementary and provide a broad, robust basis for all aspects of complex coupled modelling and use of innovative, non-standard physical process models.

Initial applications for COMSOL Multiphysics® at Quintessa are related to sophisticated structural mechanics, with a particular focus on highly-specialised non-linear thermal-elasto-plastic models in complex geometries.  The use of multiple software with contrasting numerical formulations reflects Quintessa's commitment to use the best tool for a given task and also reflects the breadth of modelling expertise available within the company.

As part of the process of building a COMSOL Multiphysics® capability in Quintessa, Alex Bond and Jenny Burrow attended the recent user conference at Churchill College, Cambridge. The conference proved to be an excellent opportunity to learn more about the software’s modelling and simulation capabilities, understand best practice in the application of the software, meet with key members of the development team, and interact with fellow users.
