Professor Joel L. Plawsky, Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
As a professor in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY, and author of the textbook, Transport Phenomena Fundamentals, Joel L. Plawsky has been using COMSOL Multiphysics for more than five years. “As a research tool, COMSOL has simplified our lives quite a bit. Instead of having to write code and laboriously work to visualize the solutions, we are now able to be much more efficient and productive. COMSOL enables us to spend less time solving the problem and more time understanding the underlying physical phenomena and analyzing the results,” he said.
