Welcoming Remarks
10:40 AM

This introductory demonstration will show you the fundamental workflow of the COMSOL Multiphysics® modeling environment. We will cover all of the key modeling steps, including creating geometries, setting up physics, meshing, solving, and postprocessing. We will also highlight new features in COMSOL Multiphysics® version 5.4.

How Multiphysics Simulation Tools Enhance Concept-Design-Focused Product Development

Concept design is a crucial stage in the product development life cycle of automobiles, involving an iterative collaboration between the design and computer-aided engineering (CAE) teams. The CAE analysts work hard toward evaluating design options to meet the system performance and weight targets for a vehicle. For their suggestions to be incorporated in the final design, however, the results need to be available well before the design is finalized, which is often not the case; this increases the product development cycle time. Therefore, it is important to evaluate more design options at the concept phase itself for a robust and optimized vehicle architecture that meets the predefined targets. Simulation software like COMSOL Multiphysics® enables design engineers to quickly test various designs while allowing CAE engineers to focus on detailed CAE analysis, such as multidisciplinary optimization for improving performance and reducing weight.

Parallel Minicourses - 1
Modeling Batteries and Battery Packs

Learn how to effectively model batteries and battery packs using COMSOL Multiphysics®. In this minicourse, we will discuss the detailed electrochemistry approach and lumped model approaches to modeling batteries. With the help of the COMSOL Multiphysics® software, we will also demonstrate how modeling can be used for charge and discharge analysis, abuse modeling, and the thermal management of battery systems.

Structural Mechanics and Acoustics

This minicourse will cover the rich physics involved in structural analysis and acoustics as well as the interactions between them. Interactive examples include transducers, speakers, microphones, SAW filters, smartphones, medical sensors, and many others. We will discuss the range of material models (linear and nonlinear) you can choose from; loading and support conditions; and linking between solids, shells, plates, and beams.

Parallel Minicourse - 2
CFD and Heat Transfer Presentation/Demo

In this guided, hands-on session, we will walk you through an example of modeling fluid flow and give a quick overview of using the CFD Module for laminar, turbulent, and high Mach number flow; non-Newtonian, multiphase, and nonisothermal flows; and flow in mixers. Learn how to accurately model thermal characteristics of systems that include heat transfer by conduction, convection, and radiation. We will review how you can model and optimize systems that include phase change, bioheating, electronic cooling, thermally induced stresses, and thin thermal barriers.

Modeling Electric Machines and High-Voltage Transmission Devices

This session will discuss the details of modeling electric machines and high-voltage transmission devices using the COMSOL Multiphysics® software, along with various multiphysics aspects. We will focus on modeling electric and magnetic fields and on how to capture nonlinearity in magnetic materials. During this session, we will also explain how to model different types of transformers and electric motors, such as induction motors, permanent magnet motors, linear variable differential transformers (LVDTs), generators, alternators, magnetic gears, bearings, and more. In addition, we will discuss how to compute winding and core losses for thermal analysis in motors and transformers. See how electromagnetic forces can be coupled with structural mechanics and acoustics to predict noise in electric machinery.
