COMSOL Inc., developers of COMSOL Multiphysics for modeling and simulating physics-based systems just announced the availability of COMSOL News 2010, the newest edition of its annual technical journal. The 60-page edition presents a broad overview of how scientists, engineers, and researchers worldwide use COMSOL Multiphysics to develop new products and optimize designs.

Articles range from cooling super magnets in the CERN Large Hadron Collider to how NASA microwaved moondust in search of water on the moon. Participating authors come from institutions including Baker Hughes, the French Atomic Energy Commission, GM Global R&D India Science Lab, Kobelco Research Institute, Osram Sylvania, Procter & Gamble, the Royal Military College of Canada, and the U.S. Army Engineer Research & Development Center.

In a special commentary, Microsoft's Dr. Henrik Steepler discusses high-end analysis applications such as COMSOL Multiphysics and the raw power of high-performance computing. Injection molding for medical device implants, perfecting sound waves with line array loudspeakers, modeling nuclear fuel behavior for enhanced reactor performance and safety, and simulating thermal runaway for safer lithium ion batteries are among the 20 articles also offered in COMSOL News 2010. The magazine is available immediately. Register for a free download or request a hard copy
