Comsol v. 5.2a / physics module compatibility

Dear ICP team,

I have two questions:

1. is there an ICP update in preparation which makes ICP compatible with Comsol 5.2a?
2. It was mentioned that ICP is not compatible with some Comsol modules (e.g. structural mechanics). Can you elaborate a bit more on which physics modules are compatible or incompatible and what exactly is the reason the prevents the user from coupling... (might be a topic for a blog post...)

Thanks a lot!

Dear Thomas,

We have been focused on improving the usability of iCP and next week there will be a release of iCP 1.3.1 compatible with Comsol 5.2.

In parallel we are in contact with Comsol developers to solve the issues with v5.2a and future release of iCP will be compatible with the last version of Comsol.

About modules:
The variables (solutes) that are solved in both Comsol and Phreeqc can be solved uniquely in Comsol through the iCP Tools. We are working to make the “Transport of Diluted Species in Porous Media” module also compatible.

The coupling of the solute transport with other physics of Comsol ( fluid flow, mathematics, thermal,...) can be done and have been tested. However, there is a problem with physics with deformable meshes as the structural mechanics. In deformable meshes the temporal derivatives of Comsol are written in a different way causing compatibility problems with the solute transport. We are working on this as well and future iCP version will be compatible with structural mechanics.

Best,
Alvaro

Dear Alvaro,

thank you for the comments and explanations about the version and physics modules compatibility. I'm looking forward to the further development of ICP! ;)

Best,
Thomas
