How to access this item?


The Structural Mechanics Module is dedicated to the analysis of components and subsystems where it is necessary to evaluate deformations under loads. It also contains special physics interfaces for the modeling of shells, beams and trusses.

Physics interfaces in this module solve stationary and dynamic models, including nonlinear problems and let you perform Eigen frequency (i.e. model) parametric, quasi-static and frequency-response analyses. 3D solid as well as 2D plane stress, plane strain and axisymmetric analyses allow the specification of elasto-plastic and hyper-elastic material laws, large deformations, contact piezoelectric analysis and thermo-elasticity.

The Structural Mechanics Module works in tandem with COMSOL Multiphysics and the other discipline-specific modules to couple structural analysis into any multiphysics phenonmenon.

Note: To use any of the COMSOL Modules, a COMSOL Multiphysics Base License pass is required. All module software is included with the COMSOL Multiphysics download file, which means you need to download only once.
