Transport Phenomena Workshop

Date & Location

City: Gent
Date: May 8, 2014
Time: 13:00 - 16:00
Location: Congrescentrum Het Pand
Onderbergen 1
9000 Gent
Room: Persconferentiezaal

Workshop is free of charge


Transport phenomena are extensively used in a range of engineering disciplines. Although the most typical examples of a transport analysis are found in the fields of process, chemical, and mechanical engineering, transport phenomena are a key component in all disciplines involved in any way with mass transfer, heat transfer and fluid mechanics.

Application Areas:

  • Non-isothermal flow, conjugent heat transfer
  • Sedimentation, emulsions, suspensions
  • Fluidized beds and sprays
  • Cyclones, filters
  • Electronic cooling
  • Gas bubble flow
  • Heat exchange

Intro to COMSOL Multiphysics
with Live Demos

The first half of the workshop provides an overview of the CFD Module and the Chemical Reaction Engineering Module. In particular, we will focus on how these modules can be used to model fluid flow, heat and mass transfer problems, including chemical reactions. We will show a gallery of example models as well as set up and solve a few illustrative problems.

Hands-on Session

The second half is a hands-on tutorial in COMSOL Multiphysics Version 4.4. During this session you will get a chance to work through one or more tutorial problems related to transport phenomena. These tutorial problems are designed to make participants quickly proficient in COMSOL Mutliphysics Version 4.4, enabling you to model your own problems with the included two week trial.

Come and experience the power and efficiency of COMSOL Multiphysics!

Intended Audience

This workshop provides an introduction to COMSOL Multiphysics. It is intended for new as well as existing COMSOL software users who would like to get acquainted with modeling mass and energy transport problems.
