Pros: Very versatile for the study of coupled or multiphysical phenomena, also offering a very good interface with Matlab, for example.

Even more versatile is the fact that the simulation packages that make up the program are multiplatform, so they can run in Windows environments, such as Mac and Linux, for example, which for a teacher, as in my case, gives me wide freedom for its pedagogical use among students.

Another intrinsic property of importance is the fact that the user can define at pleasure, practically the number of local coordinate systems that he wishes, being able to work simultaneously in 3D, 2D and 1D.

Cons: The amount of memory that is required to run a simulation is large and the execution time can be quite long for an individual simulation.

However, if the Comsol Mutiphysics is used with a floating network license it is possible to use the client-server operation mode to access the remote calculation resources to solve large models, while continuing to use the graphics card in a machine local for the visualization of the graphics.

This mode of operation can generate many advantages above all in terms of obtaining faster and more efficient results when working with models where intrinsically is being solved over and over again, a large system of equations.

COMSOL is a great FEA software for simulating Multiphysics CAE problems.

Pros: The coupled phenomena of multiple physics for designing engineering products and the flexibility to edit governing equations is an innovative approach. Easy to use and design engineering products in virtual environment. Comsol Application builder is really a great platform to develop simulation app from comsol model.

Cons: A little challenging to understand coupling of multiple physics and mathematical modeling in a single environment.

Overall: Learned about multiple physical mechanism acting on engineering products. Developed several mulphysics CAE model in less time duration. Simulated and validated innovative engineering products and published as technical papers.

Pros: The best thing about this software is the freedom that it offers the user to select the physics of problem and the kind of dimensional space the user is working with. The user can make the geometry with ease and mesh it according to his or her needs. There are a lot of options available for post processing data which helps the user to see convergence of various mesh sizes and make sure that their model is an accurate representation of the true problem. The user can combine various solution sets and extract data for further processing.

Cons: There is not a good library for this software. One has to browse through forums online if they get stuck at some point with their problem.

Overall: I learnt a lot in general about how finite element modelling works. I worked with a lot of different element types, mesh sizes to see how it affects my problem.

Pros: It's extremely easy to learn to use. I first used it as a student in a fluid dynamics and heat transfer course, and as long as I understood the core equations behind what I was modeling, it was easy to get started up and running within a day. Additionally, the CAD functionality was very easy to use. The first shapes that I ever solved for were complex heat sink geometries.

It's also customizable to a wide variety of scenarios and one of the few tools that can combine both structural and fluid flow/heat transfer simulations into a single simulation.

Cons: The amount of memory that it takes to run a simulation is large and the run time can be pretty long for an individual simulation. Additionally, solvers are not as robust as other tools which are often used for industrial CFD/FEA.

Pros: COMSOL has allowed me to model many mass transfer phenomena that are difficult to do by hand or with softwares such as Matlab or Mathcad. It has a nice step-by-step approach to begin my modeling, allowing me to pick different physics and variables with ease.

The online help and tutorials are plentiful and useful.

Cons: Sometimes, even when attempting to save a report as a word or text document, COMSOL will save it as a different file type until the second try.

Overall: COMSOL has been a daily workhorse for my Mass transfer modeling needs.

Pros: it had excellents models for CFD modeling and others situations. it had a great capacity for modeling with respect to meshing and processing of data.

Cons: it's a bit sturdy, the enviroment is not friendly, the user must have a previous knowledge, it seems to be a little hard to learn and manage.
