COMSOL Intro, Fluid Flow & Heat Transfer Workshops

Ithaca, NY - August 15, 2014: Join us for this unique opportunity to advance your skills in multiphysics simulation. This extended workshop begins with a walk-through of the fundamental modeling steps in COMSOL Multiphysics, followed by two specialized sessions focusing on fluid flow and heat transfer applications. During the workshop, attendees will have the chance to set up and solve a simulation through a hands-on exercise, guided by a COMSOL expert. You will leave with new skills to work on your own applications using your free, two-week COMSOL trial.

8:45am – 9:00am Registration
9:00am - 10:30am Introduction to COMSOL Multiphysics
  • Discover the capabilities and features of COMSOL Multiphysics and get a quick overview of the add-on products
  • Learn the natural workflow of the COMSOL Desktop user interface through which all physical phenomena are set up
  • See how to efficiently create and modify your models, and optimize your designs, step-by-step
  • Experience the speed and ease of modeling in the COMSOL environment, shown through a hands-on multiphysics simulation example
10:30am - 12:00pm Hands-on Tutorial*
  • Set up and solve your first simulation
  • Have a conversation with a COMSOL specialist about your application area
  • Start your two-week free trial and work through your own simulations helped by the COMSOL Technical Support Team
12:00pm - 1:00pm Break
1:00pm – 2:30pm Fluid Flow Applications
Learn about COMSOL's capabilities for modeling of fluid flow. You will see:
  • The range of capabilities, from microfluidics to supersonic flow and everything in between
  • Modeling of different fluid phases and particle tracing
  • Modeling of mixers and stirred vessels
  • How to efficiently set up fluid flow models
  • How to couple fluids flow to other physics, such as heat transfer and chemical reaction engineering
2:45pm – 4:15pm Heat Transfer Applications
Find out about COMSOL’s capabilities for thermal analysis. You will learn about modeling of:
  • Conduction, the transfer of heat through solids
  • Convection, the transport of heat by moving fluids via the coupling to flow simulations
  • Radiation, the transfer of heat via infrared
  • How to couple these analyses together, and to other physics such as structural mechanics, electromagnetics, and chemical reaction modeling

* To participate in the hands-on session you will need to bring a laptop to run a free two-week trial license of the COMSOL software. If you are unable to bring a laptop, we'll ask you to pair up with another attendee during the hands-on part of the workshop.
