COMSOL Multiphysics

To install COMSOL Multiphysics 5.0 using the Class Kit License:

NOTE: the old instructions will most likely fail as our license agreement is out of date. The new procedure for installation on a Mac is to copy the COMSOL folder from the Applications folder on a Mac on which the software is already installed. I have it on a flash drive if you prefer. If you have a PC you will be out of luck because Gross.

    COMSOL 5.6 is available on the class kit license. It uses the same license server and current installs of 5.0 should still work. Since we have a license for it, you can download 5.6 from the COMSOL web page. Contact Dr. Johnson for details.
