Using Global Equations to Introduce Fully Coupled Goal Seeking
Learn how to introduce a goal-seeking equation, combined with a fully coupled approach, to solve a nonlinear model. (Follow-up to an earlier blog post on goal seeking with a segregated solver.)
Introducing Goal Seeking into the Segregated Solver
Did you know that you can adjust a model input to achieve a desired output in your nonlinear problems? The process involves implementing a global equation into the segregated solver.
Modeling Parts Without Constraints in Your Structural Analyses
When building a solid mechanics model, there may be parts with prescribed loads but no constraints that can be reasonably applied. Learn different approaches and considerations for this scenario.
How to Run COMSOL Multiphysics® from the Command Line
Did you know that you can run repeated variations of the same COMSOL Multiphysics® model file from the command line — and automatically export data?
Accelerating Model Convergence with Symbolic Differentiation
Whenever you set up and solve a nonlinear problem in COMSOL Multiphysics, a symbolic differentiation engine is automatically used to ensure high robustness and accelerate model convergence.
Equation-Based Modeling with a Space-Time Discretization
In COMSOL Multiphysics®, almost any expression in a computational model can be modified. For example, using a space-time discretization can make optimization problems easy and fast to implement.

Modeling a Scatterer Near an Optical Waveguide
In the real world, most structures are more complex than a 2D dielectric slab. However, if you’re designing photonic structures, you can learn a lot about wave optics modeling from this example.
