Comsol, accessing/refering to solution

  1. Jul 30, 2009 #1
    Hey, I have recently begun using Comsol and have came to a halt for several days now because I'm unable to access the solution which Comsol calculates.

    The model is pretty straightforward (2D) : A Beam which is Fixed on one side with a downward force applied on the other side.

    I use the script ( write it with matlab ) to run several iterations which each consecutive iteration using different material properties.

    I am trying to feed the Stress calculated previously into the E module used for the next calculation.
    The problem I have is that I don't understand how to refer to the previous results , explicitly the stress/reaction force/displacement ( which would be dependent on x,y ).

    I hope I can declare a function , say S(x,y) , for the stress at a specific location and ad that to the E module.

    many thanks
