Back to Events Calendar

If you are looking for an intensive introduction to using COMSOL Multiphysics® for modeling fluid flow and heat transfer, this is the course for you. During the 2-day COMSOL Multiphysics® CFD training course, you will develop a strong foundation for your future fluid flow and thermal modeling needs. We start at an introductory level, leading students through the essential steps needed in fluid and thermal simulations. You will learn how to simulate creep, laminar and turbulent flow, heat transfer and fluid flow in porous media, multiphase flow, high Mach number flow, conjugate heat transfer, and free and forced convection. To teach this course, we use a combination of guided hands-on training, theoretical and practical lecture, and self-guided exercises. The goal is to immerse you in all of the main aspects of using COMSOL Multiphysics® and relevant add-on modules, so that you feel comfortable working with the software. By the end of the training session, you will know how to set up a fluid flow or thermal problem, choose the right boundary conditions, select appropriate mesh settings, and use the result visualization tools.

Day 1, 9:00am - 5:00pm

Please plan to check in between 8:30 am - 9:00 am.

The training course begins with a step-by-step guided introduction to fluid flow modeling, so that you learn the key steps in the modeling workflow. In particular, we will walk you through the following:

  • Using and understanding the key features of the COMSOL Multiphysics® software
  • Importing and creating a geometry for analysis
  • Best practices for meshing your geometry
  • Setting up physics and solving the simulation
  • Postprocessing results

After introducing the software and modeling workflow, the course will transition to focusing on fluid flow applications. The following topics will be covered:

  • Overview of the CFD Module
  • Setting up simulations of microfluidic, laminar, and turbulent flows
  • Selecting the appropriate RANS turbulence models
  • Simulating multiphase flows
  • Modeling porous media flows, High Mach number flows, and rarefied flows
  • Capturing multiphysics phenomena including heat transfer, mass transport, fluid-structure interactions, and particle tracing

Day 2, 9:00am - 5:00pm

Please plan to check in between 8:30 am - 9:00 am.

The second day builds upon the training from the previous day with a focus on the modeling of fluid flow and thermal simulations. Topics will include:

  • Practical and theoretical aspects of multiphysics modeling and efficient solution techniques for CFD modeling
  • Meshing best practices for fluid flow physics
  • Visualization and presentation of results
  • Some or all of the above topics will be considered, according to the length of the course and the interests of the participants.
