    Electroacoustic Simulation in COMSOL Multiphysics 6

      The release of COMSOL Multiphysics 6.0 brings major updates to the Acoustics Module and the simulation of electroacoustic transducers. This includes a simplified workflow for setting up hybrid lumped-FEM models of loudspeakers, a user interface for the simulation of magnetomechanical forces in transducers, and much more. Several of the new features are the direct results of feedback collected from users within the audio industry.
