COMSOL® is the premier multi-physics simulation software used by researchers and industry around the world for specialized multi-physics simulation. COMSOL has the ability to simulate any physical system that can be modeled as a system of ordinary or partial differential equations. Firstly, this means that almost any real-world physics can be programmed into COMSOL for simulation. Secondly, the flexibility of the COMSOL platform implies that it can handle complex interactions between various types of physics — problems colloquially known as “multiphysics” problems.
Both these abilities of COMSOL are a perfect match for Noumenon's capabilities and requirements. Noumenon Multiphysics is an applied physics / applied mathamatics consultancy firm, specializing in modeling and simulation of novel phenomena and situations to improve industrial products and processes. Noumenon's process involves modeling — the reformulation of complex interdependent real-world phenomena as mathematical equations, followed by simulation — the solving of these mathematical equations on a computer for prediction and optimization purposes. “Since COMSOL can solve almost any system of equations, it becomes a great addition to our arsenal of simulation techniques. In many cases, the problem boils down to just figuring out what the right equations are!” says Udayan Kanade, CEO of Noumenon Multiphysics.
With this synergy in mind, Noumenon engineers and scientists started using COMSOL for multiphysics simulation. Subsequently, COMSOL Inc., the makers of COMSOL, have conferred upon Noumenon Multiphysics the distinction of being a COMSOL Certified Consultant. As a result, Noumenon joins an elite group of specialist consultants that “use their extensive experience with COMSOL Multiphysics […] to deliver turnkey solutions for a wide range of modeling projects”. (Quote from the COMSOL website.)
The COMSOL Certified Consultant program started in 2007, and has a real expansion from about 2010. Says Phil Kinnane, COMSOL's VP of Business Development, “The COMSOL Certified Consultant program is an important pillar in the COMSOL business strategy. While COMSOL Multiphysics is a very intuitive and easy-to-use software, sometimes our customers require help and thus experts, not only in the software, but in the physics itself, and we like to offer them an avenue for gaining this help. COMSOL believes that the consultants it has certified are experts in their areas of simulation, proficient in the use of COMSOL's software, and provide professional consultancy services.”
