How could I do this in Comsol?

How could I do this in Comsol?

How could I do this in Comsol?

I am running a "Study 2", which runs a parametric sweep over certain k-values and gives a plot (Fig.1).

Study 2, k-values and plot

The plot changes depending on parameters "a" and "b". I want to run the same study, but I want the "a" and "b" values to keep changing. So I might want to run a study for 3 sets of parameter "a" and "b" which might look like this:

Set 1: "a" = 0.196 "b" = 0.190

Set 2: "a" = 0.194 "b" = 0.192

Set 1: "a" = 0.191 "b" = 0.193

Obviously I can just manually change parameter "a" and "b" and run the study again for each set, but I want to automate this process - does anyone have any idea?

The parameters "a" and "b"

RE: How could I do this in Comsol?

If there are only 3 sets of parameters then I think that it will be easiest to just change them and run the analysis three times, then combine the results into a single plot. Automation attempts may take a lot more time. Parametric studies are built-in feature in Comsol but apart from that you would have to write your own Java scripts to automate the process.
