COMSOL Community goes live

On-line networking site connects worldwide COMSOL Multiphysics® users

BURLINGTON, MA (June 24, 2009) - COMSOL, Inc., the maker of COMSOL Multiphysics - the market leading software for multiphysics modeling and simulation - has launched a new networking site called COMSOL Community. With over 50,000 users of COMSOL software worldwide, the new service provides a convenient way for these engineers and scientists to connect with their colleagues. By joining the community, individuals can tap into the virtually unlimited expertise of tens of thousands of highly skilled modeling and simulation experts.

The COMSOL Community includes a suite of services to facilitate interaction among users and the exchange of models and application expertise. The Discussion Forum is a bulletin-board style newsgroup open to the discussion of any topic related to modeling and simulation. The forum serves as a user-powered help desk providing an extensive scope of application know-how. The Model Exchange allows members of the community to download and upload models. Over a dozen models are available upon the debut of the community. A User Presentation library features over 1,000 user contributed papers and presentation slides. This is a rich resource, and may prove to be valuable to someone who is able to solve their challenges more easily thanks to previously published work available on the site. The Multiphysics Blog provides the latest tips and tricks for users of COMSOL Multiphysics.

Member registration is free-of-charge. To join the community, visit www.comsol.com/community/.
