COMSOL Intro, Microfluidics & Heat Transfer Workshop

Ruston, LA - September 24, 2014: Join us for this unique opportunity to advance your skills in multiphysics simulation. This half-day workshop begins with a walk-through of the fundamental modeling steps in COMSOL Multiphysics. Attendees will then 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.

9:15am – 9:30am Registration
9:30am – 10:30am Intro 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 – 11:30am Microfluidics & Heat Transfer Applications
Get an overview of the microfluidic modeling features in COMSOL.
  • Learn to simulate pressure-driven and electrokinetic flows in microfluidic channels
  • Understand how to model multiphysics phenomena such as electrosmosis, electrophoresis, and dielectrophoresis in COMSOL
  • Learn to couple microfluidic fluid flow to other physics, such as heat transfer and chemical reaction engineering
  • Demonstration of a microfluidics focused tutorial example
  • Coupling to other physics, such as fluid-structure interactions
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
11:30am – 12:30pm 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

* 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.
