Approaching Thermal Modeling With A Cloud-Based Simulation App

Approaching Thermal Modeling With A Cloud-Based Simulation App

Previously we have given an intro of how cad centers in Kochi can be managed on cloud, its features, pros, cons and scope in future. Here a blog linked with the technology is  put forward before you to understand on how a cloud based app can be utilised for thermal modelling which is being used in designing wide variety of products in real time.

The strategy is being used in COMSOL Multiphysics, a general purpose software which relies on complex numerical methods for modelling and mimicking physics based problems. It smoothens multiphysics phenomena by its multiphysics ability best suited for simulations. COMSOL Application Builder creates application which can be run and distributed on COMSOL server.

2D & 3D model of the COMSOL application are used because it is specific for modeling for mass and heat transfer of fluid flow, also due to the fact that they are more frequently relied options for thermal and fluid flow models. 2D representation can be utilised for exploring wide range of operating conditions while the 3D replica is best suited for detailed analysis and optimization.


Both 3D & 2D model have its own challenges on their way. The former representation undergoes phase changes to allow simulation of water vaporization while the latter due to its high geometry, large amount of memory space is required to compute the model. Notably, users in small and medium enterprises who have shortage in capacity computation, cloud serves the best hardware extensions to handle these models simultaneously.

The remote COMSOL Multiphysics in cloud environment has revealed to be a very responsive platform and the graphics standard were excellent post setting the proper parameters in the software connected to the network. This has opened doors to handle complex 3D models without any delay between the mouse inputs and the GUI response. Also the operation which includes meshing and post processings of large models takes seconds for completion.

COMSOL Apps can be used instead of Application Builder (AB) in the local desktops as linux container doesn’t support the latter. Creating and testing an app in the AB requires less memory and computational capacity than other complicated processes like meshing, solving or post-processing a model. Also the app can be uploaded to the COMSOL server in a hassle free manner followed by the final test in its development cycle.   


  • Utilisation of COMSOL Multiphysics along with High Cloud Computing (HPC) has proved to provide a lot of benefits to the end users.
  • It increases the amount of memory space required for critical projects and yields higher throughput.
  • The above point can result in production of more realistic cum detailed model.   
  • The end users can get access to powerful workstations at a fast rate.
  • The easy accessibility to the cloud applications by COMSOL Multiphysics enables the user (especially those running an organisation) to extend his license on hardware with cloud HPC.
  • Improves the usability by delivering a 24 X 7 round clock resources allowed through remote desktops.


The contents above are based on an expert study using COMSOL Multiphysics and server. The cloud simulation app can make you stand one step ahead of others. To train on the above technologies, approach 3D modeling training centres in Kochi to learn and expertise as this field is one of the scopeful area for candidates having a keen in technology and designing. Also, 3D modeling softwares given by courses online in Kochi provides an easy access to learn the demanded field in an easy manner.
