COMSOL is a global provider of simulation software for product design, engineering, and research in technical enterprises, labs, and universities. COMSOL Multiphysics® is a software environment for the modelling and simulation of any physics-based system with the ability to account for multi-physics phenomena. Optional add-on modules add discipline-specific tools for mechanical, fluid, electromagnetics, and chemical simulations, as well as CAD interoperability. Simulation experts can use COMSOL Server™ and COMSOL Compiler™ to deploy simulation applications to design teams, manufacturing departments, test laboratories, and customers worldwide.
Most corrosion occurs due to electrochemical reaction processes taking place underwater and in wet or humid environments. Modelling corrosion allows engineers and scientists to investigate these processes, gain an understanding of the extent to which corrosion could occur over the lifetime of a structure, and implement preventative measures to inhibit electrochemical corrosion, in order to protect their structures. The Corrosion Module, an add-on to COMSOL Multiphysics®, can be used to simulate corrosion at the microscale in order to investigate the fundamental mechanisms, and at larger scales to determine how to protect massive or long-ranging structures from corroding.
