COMSOL announces COMSOL Client for Android is now available. Engineers and students are now able to perform simulation tasks from their Android devices, such as phones, tablets and Chromebooks simply by connecting to the COMSOL Server software that runs the computations remotely.
COMSOL Client for Android expands on the capabilities of the Application Builder and COMSOL Server by enabling users to take simulation applications on the road, without being limited by device hardware. Providing field technicians or sales representatives with COMSOL Multiphysics directly on Android devices allows users to bring the R&D work on site or to the sales pitch.
“COMSOL Server allows users to run simulations through web browsers or desktop-installed clients,” explains Daniel Ericsson, applications product manager, COMSOL. “COMSOL Client for Android expands on those capabilities by introducing a more seamless user experience on Android devices.”
The Application Builder and COMSOL Server were developed to make multiphysics modeling more accessible to a wider audience. The Application Builder allows simulation specialists to create custom-made applications based on their multiphysics models. With COMSOL Server, organizations have been able to deploy industry-specific analysis tools in a streamlined and quick-to-implement format, according to COMSOL.
“Expanding the reach of multiphysics modeling is at the core of our mission,” adds Ericsson. “COMSOL Client for Android will allow everyone from design engineers to field technicians be more efficient with the ability to run COMSOL Multiphysics simulations from the palm of their hands.”
The simulations are run on remote servers, so users are not limited by your device hardware. Administrators continue to have full control over who can access and run the apps by using COMSOL Server. Android users will have the latest version of a simulation application each time they open the app.
