Introduction

We start at an introductory level, then lead the student through topics needed in all analyses (interactive meshing techniques, choosing solvers, etc) and then into advanced topics (coupling variables, adding and modifying equations) using lecture, worked examples and workshop problems. The goal is to immerse the student in all of the main aspects of using COMSOL so that he or she can feel comfortable with most of the commands accessible from the user interface and confident that they can be productive solving simulation problems with COMSOL.

Day 1, 09:00-17:00

By considering a variety of models we will bring out points to help you get the most out of each step in the modeling process.
In particular we will consider...

  • Modeling with COMSOL Multiphysics
  • Geometry modeling in 2D and 3D
  • Specifying physics condition
  • Couplings between physics
  • Using expressions
  • Controlling mesh generation
  • Analysis type and solver choices
  • Post-processing options

Day 2, 09:00-17:00

By considering a variety of models we will bring out points to help you get the most out of each step in the process.
In particular we will consider...

  • Solvers available and options
  • Advanced geometry modeling
  • Controlling the degrees of freedom
  • Advanced and interactive meshing
  • Standard and advanced post-processing options
  • Using external functions in the material parameters
  • Non-local coupling variables (extended multiphysics)

According to the length of the course and the interests of the participants, some or all of the above will be considered.

Instructor

Dr. Sven Friedel
COMSOL Multiphysics GmbH, Zurich

Dr. Sven Friedel is a physicist and earned his Ph.D. at the University of Leipzig (Germany) in geophysics, specializing in electromagnetic inverse problems applied to tomographic imaging. He also taught courses in, among other things, geomagnetics. For his research he focused on the simulation of electrical, fluidic, and thermal processes in volcanoes. After several years working as a postdoctoral researcher in the area of geotechnical engineering at the ETH in Zurich, in 2004 Dr. Friedel established COMSOL AB's branch office in Switzerland.

Dr. Thierry Luthy (Physicist)
COMSOL Multiphysics GmbH, Zurich

Thierry Luthy studied at the University of Neuchâtel in the field of superconducting materials. After his physicist diploma, he worked for some years at the EMPA Dübendorf in various research areas e.g. the nondestructive testing of high-technology ceramics. In 2003, he completed his PhD at the ETH Zürich in the field of composite materials.
