How to program large FEA problems

Optimization Lab software runs in Comsol Script, a programming interface for scientific computation and visualization.

The software includes a suite of Script functions for setting up and solving large FEA and multiphysics problems. Optimization Lab includes solvers based on SNOPT and SQOPT codes. An additional solver routine chooses the best solver type for user-specified optimization problems.
