To start, we will briefly discuss the format of the day and go over the logistics for using GoToMeeting.


See how you can deploy the power of high-fidelity simulation to engineers, designers, operators, and scientists throughout your organization.


Learn the fundamental workflow of COMSOL Multiphysics®. This introductory demonstration will show you all of the key modeling steps, including geometry creation, setting up physics, meshing, solving, and postprocessing.


Learn about the tools for generating a geometry model with COMSOL Multiphysics®. We will cover how to efficiently build geometry that can be parameterized and look into how to carry out tasks such as creating a sketch with dimensions and constraints, generating 2D cross sections of 3D objects, and more.


Learn about the capabilities of the AC/DC Module for modeling Maxwell's equations in the low-frequency regime. Use cases include resistive and capacitive devices, inductors and coils, as well as motors and magnets.

Break for Lunch

Industry and government organizations will showcase how they are using multiphysics simulation to improve products and solve problems.


Get a brief overview of using the Heat Transfer Module within the COMSOL® software environment. We will discuss conjugate heat transfer with the combination of heat transfer in solids and heat transfer in fluids, including thermal radiation effects. These phenomena could also be coupled with structural mechanics, chemical reactions, and particle tracing.


Learn about the Acoustics Module and how it can be used to model sounds waves, their propagation, and their interaction with solids at both small and large scales. Use cases include nondestructive testing, speakers, microphones, and sonar.


Get an overview of using the CFD Module for laminar, turbulent, non-Newtonian, multiphase, and porous media flows as well as flow in mixers. These phenomena could also be coupled with structural mechanics, chemical reactions, and particle tracing.


Get an overview of the shape and topology optimization capabilities available in the COMSOL® software for producing lightweight and more efficient designs. Shape optimization involves the free-form deformation of a CAD part by means of the mesh and geometry deformation tools in COMSOL Multiphysics® and the Optimization Module. Using just a few control variables, you can quickly come up with improved designs. Topology optimization is used to come up with entirely novel designs by allowing the material distribution within the modeling domain to vary.
