- 1 ea. Chemical Reaction Engineering (CHEM) Module
- 2 ea. Electrochemistry Module
- 2 ea. Heat Transfer Module
- 1 ea. LiveLink for Excel
- 3 ea. LiveLink for MATLAB
- 1 ea. LiveLink for SOLIDWORKS
- 1 ea. Materials Library (MATLIB)
- 2 ea. MEMS Module
- 2 ea. Microfluidics Module
- 1 ea. Molecular Flow Module
- 1 ea. Multibody Dynamics Module
- 3 ea. Nonlinear Structural Materials Module
- 1 ea. Optimization Module
- 2 ea. Particle Tracing Module
- 1 ea. Ray Optics Module

Current groups participating in the license pool:
Groups included in the 2020-2021 license pool: Bowers, Campas, Dressaire, Hawkes, Liao, Luzzatto-Fegiz, McFarland, Meinhart, Mishra, Moody, Pennathur, Sauret, Sepunaru, Theogarajan, and Zhu.
COMSOL System Requirements:
- COMSOL runs with Windows, Mac OS X and Linux operating systems.
- An active network connection to obtain a lcense from the pool. And the UCSB VPN client of off campus access.
- Users who buy into the license pool can also run the software on the CNSI Center for Scientific Computing clusters.
- Full details regarding system requirements can be found at: https://www.comsol.com/system-requirements
Cost distribution: Each research group participating in the pool pays an equal share of the total license.
