With LiveLink for Excel to connect multiphysics results with spreadsheets, version 4.3a of COMSOL’s Multiphysics software further extends the ability of engineers, scientists, and researchers to leverage multiphysics to design and optimize breakthrough products and technologies. With new support for cluster computing on the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) and modules for analyzing fatigue and for importing ECAD files this new version will be available for download starting October 8. LiveLink for Excel works by adding a COMSOL tab to the new ribbon toolbar in Excel. From this tab users can control a COMSOL model. Parameters and variables used in the COMSOL Multiphysics model are available for editing in Excel instantly, and any edits to those parameters and variables in Excel can then be synchronized with the COMSOL model with a click of a button.
