An Overview of the Software

This introductory workshop will show you the fundamental workflow of the COMSOL modeling environment. Come to this workshop to:
  • 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
  • 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

Mechanical and Electromagnetic Systems

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.

Zoran Vidakovic
COMSOL Multiphysics GmbH, Zürich

Zoran Vidakovic received his BSc and MSc degrees in mechanical engineering from ETH Zürich, Switzerland. His studies and research projects focused on turbomachinery, heat transfer, fluid-
and thermodynamics and advanced energy technologies in general. In his master thesis at the Laboratory for Energy Conversion he numerically investigated the turbine performance and heat transfer of innovative cycle concepts for CO2 capture ready fossil power plants. Before joining COMSOL in April 2010 Mr. Vidakovic completed a six month industrial internship in the Aero-/ Thermodynamics R&D department of MAN Turbo AG Schweiz.
