Upcoming Live Webinar on Multiphysics Flow Simulations
Fanny Littmarck | February 6, 2012
As many of you may already know, a vast number of multiphysics simulations are based on or have something to do with fluid flow. Oftentimes, convective processes can actually play a bigger part than diffusion processes, for example in chemical reactions or heat flux.
A fluid can for instance be set in motion by changing its temperature. We have a pretty neat example of a glass filled with cold water that is placed on a heat source (as seen below). The heat is increasing the fluid’s velocity, thus causing it to move. This particular example is very simple, but the main concept can be applied to more complex situations such as industrial machinery or electronic devices, to name a couple.
(Check out an animated version of this example here).
The upcoming webinar on Thursday, February 9th at 2pm EST will explore how COMSOL can be used to simulate flow as well as how that flow can be linked to other processes. Topics to be discussed include multiphase and singular flow, laminar and turbulent flow, forced and natural convection, fluid-solid interaction and more. There will also be a worked example of how to set up and solve a convection-dominated coupled-physics problem with COMSOL Multiphysics. Get excited.
