Using Plots to Visualize Results in COMSOL Multiphysics®

Duration: 32:45

Watch this video series to learn how to create some of the most frequently used plot types in COMSOL Multiphysics®. Each video shows a step-by-step demonstration of how to create certain plot types and the advantages of using each of them. Some of the plot types featured include Volume, Surface, and Line plots, which are used to show result quantities on volumes, boundaries, and edges; Arrow plots, which are used to display vector quantities; Slice plots, for viewing quantities on slices within 3D domains; Contour and Isosurface plots, which display scalar quantities and fields in your results through a series of lines or surfaces; and Streamline plots, to show curves tangent to an instantaneous vector field.

Most of these plots can be used for any application, while some are designed to help visualize specific physical phenomena. For example, you can use Streamline plots to depict fluid flow, while Arrow plots can be used for a range of electromagnetics, transport phenomena, and heat transfer applications.

After watching this video series, you will know how to accurately portray any physics quantity by utilizing the plot tools, features, and functionality available in the COMSOL® software.
