* New product - Reaction Engineering Lab
This new add-on module slashes from hours to minutes the process
of setting up the simulation of a chemical process that involves
many chemical species and complex reaction kinetics. It also
exports models to the Chemical Engineering Module to handle

*User Spotlight: 14-million DOFs simulation of Terahertz Waveguides and Antennas
A major impediment to many practical applications of terahertz
frequencies is the lack of good waveguides. Researchers at Rice
University are using COMSOL Multiphysics to study the excitation
and propagation of terahertz radiation along metal wires and

* Tips & Tricks of the Month: - Magnetic Force Calculations
Can you calculate magnetic forces with COMSOL Multiphysics? This
is a regular question to our support team. In COMSOL Multiphysics
you can evaluate magnetic forces using three different methods:
Lorenz forces, virtual displacement and Maxwells stress tensor.

* New book: Introduction to Chemical Engineering Computing
Prof. Bruce Finlayson of the Univ of Washington, Seattle, has
just completed a book that provides an innovative introduction
to chemical engineering computing. Perfect for students and
professionals, this text, based to a large degree on COMSOL
Multiphysics, gives readers the professional tools needed to
solve a wide range of real-world problems.
