How to Create Graphs with Two Y-Axes in COMSOL Multiphysics®

Andrew Griesmer July 27, 2017

Have you ever tried to plot multiple quantities on one graph, only to realize that the scales don’t match up? You can solve this problem by adding a second y-axis to your 1D plot to include two scales of values. In the video below, we introduce a case where you would want two y-axes. We then show you how to add a second y-axis to your graph and create helpful annotations in the COMSOL Multiphysics® software.

The Open Recovery File feature is a somewhat unknown feature in the COMSOL Multiphysics® software, but it’s useful for anyone running simulations that give multiple solutions. If, for any reason, the software shuts down before the simulation finishes, you can open a recovery file so that you don’t lose your work. Here, we highlight a tutorial video on how to open these files to recover “lost” work as well as go over the strengths and limitations of this feature.

If you’ve read the COMSOL Blog before, you might know that we like to include animations in our blog posts to help illustrate concepts more clearly. Most of these animations are exported directly from the COMSOL Multiphysics® software, which means that you can export animations for your own simulations, too. At the bottom of this post, we link to a video to show you how to do that.

As you are learning to create apps in the Application Builder, we want you to take advantage of all of the tools that are available to you. The video featured here introduces you to the Editor Tools, Model Data Access, and Record Code features and demonstrates how to use them. To do so, we add a button to our app that can switch the type of plot shown in the graphics window.

If you are in the process of learning how to build simulation apps, the video shown here is a fantastic introduction to writing methods. With a fully functioning app already built, we create a method with the click of a button and then proceed to play a sound, include user inputs, and add an if-else statement. All of this is done using Language Elements, which are included in the Method Editor to help make creating methods a breeze.

When a user running your COMSOL app finds a particularly interesting set of results, they might need to save their app so they can come back to it later. Without save options, you’d have to re-run the simulation later with the input parameters they gave you. That would be very inefficient and defeat the purpose of creating simulation apps. Today, we’ll show you how to add a file menu with save options in your app.

Here’s a question for all you electromagnetics-focused simulation engineers out there: Have you ever looked in envy at your structural, fluid, and chemical counterparts as they mesh their models with the click of a button, while you struggle to mesh your infinite elements or perfectly matched layers? Well, now you too can enjoy automatic meshing with a click (or two). Let me show you how.

Importing meshes into COMSOL Multiphysics is often necessary when interfacing between different programs. With COMSOL Multiphysics version 5.0, these meshes can be converted into solid geometry objects for further investigation and modeling capabilities. You can also perform boolean operations on the new geometry for CFD, electromagetics, and acoustics applications.
