COMSOL® to Tecplot Converter


Here’s your bit of good news for COMSOL® users: Recently, John Tanski of Los Alamos National Lab released a COMSOL® to Tecplot converter. Using LiveLink™ for MATLAB®, it converts COMSOL® .mph files to a form that Tecplot can read.

The converter is located on Sourceforge.net.

From the description on Sourceforge: “The MATLAB® m.file will export data contained within a COMSOL® mph file to a datafile in the format of an ascii TECPLOT file. The underlying engine for this export is the COMSOL® – ‘LiveLink™ for MATLAB® B’ module, with MATLAB® as the manager for the file import and export.”

And, in case you aren’t familiar with COMSOL®, here’s what Wikipedia has to say about this product: “COMSOL Multiphysics® is a finite element analysis, solver and simulation software /FEA software package for various physics and engineering applications, especially coupled phenomena, or multiphysics. COMSOL Multiphysics® also offers an extensive interface to MATLAB® and its toolboxes for a large variety of programming, pre-processing and post-processing possibilities.”

If you have any questions about using COMSOL® files with your Tecplot product, please let us know.
