The optimization process finds the values for the variables that are able to change our model in order to fit some criteria. Changes introduced in the model may be related to the geometry or to the parameters used to describe the physical behavior (e.g. mechanical or thermal properties). The aim of this course is to describe the tools provided by COMSOL Multiphysics® in optimization analysis. We start with a brief theoretical introduction and continue by showing practical examples related to several areas of physics.

Topics Include

  • Introduction to optimization analysis
  • Parameterizing with COMSOL Multiphysics® and running parametric sweeps
  • Examples of gradient-based and derivative-free optimization
  • Hints on moving mesh and possible application to geometry optimization
  • Sensitivity analysis with COMSOL Multiphysics®
  • Optimization algorithms available in the Optimization Module
  • Multianalysis optimization
  • Constraints in optimization: types and their handling
  • Optimization: best practices
  • Least squares objective optimization problems
  • Topological optimization

Suggested Background
