COMSOL Multiphysics® 3.5a Roll Out

COMSOL starts shipping COMSOL Multiphysics 3.5a to thousands of customers in USA, Canada, Mexico and South America.

BURLINGTON, MA (November 3, 2008) — COMSOL® starts shipping COMSOL Multiphysics 3.5a, the latest version of its flagship product for multiphysics modeling and simulation. All COMSOL customers on subscription by October 31, 2008 will receive COMSOL Multiphysics 3.5a. Customers will start receiving the new version in late November.

COMSOL Multiphysics 3.5a is replacing COMSOL Multiphysics 3.5 that was announced on October 10, 2008. The version 3.5a product suite has been updated to provide the optional Labs – COMSOL Reaction Engineering Lab® for the modeling of reacting systems and the Optimization Lab for multiphysics problems optimization – as add-ons to COMSOL Multiphysics. Interfacing COMSOL Multiphysics 3.5a from a script based environment now requires MATLAB® from The MathWorks, Inc.
