Back to Events Calendar

If you are looking for an intensive introduction to using COMSOL Multiphysics® for modeling fluid flow, this is the course for you. During the 4-day COMSOL Multiphysics® CFD training course, you will develop a strong foundation for your future fluid flow and related multiphysics modeling needs.

The course starts at an introductory level, leading students through the essential steps needed in fluid simulations. You will learn how to simulate creeping, laminar, and turbulent flows; 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 the relevant add-on modules so that you feel comfortable working with the software. By the end of the training course, you will know how to set up a fluid flow model, choose the right boundary conditions, select appropriate mesh settings, and use the results visualization tools.

Day 1

11 a.m.–1 p.m. EDT

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. After briefly 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
  • Modeling creeping and laminar flows

2 p.m.–5 p.m. EDT

  • Modeling turbulent flows and selecting the appropriate RANS turbulence models
  • Introduction to compressible flow modeling

Day 2

11 a.m.–1 p.m. EDT

The second day builds upon the training from the previous day with a focus on the modeling of conjugate heat transfer and chemically reacting flows. Topics will include:

  • Modeling high Mach number flows
  • Modeling natural and forced convection

2 p.m.–5 p.m. EDT

  • Modeling chemically reacting flows
  • Modeling fluid structure interaction and rotating machinery

Day 3

11 a.m.–1 p.m. EDT

The third day will focus on the modeling of multiphase flows. Topics will include:

  • Modeling particle tracing
  • Modeling separated multiphase flows

2 p.m.–5 p.m. EDT

  • Modeling dispersed multiphase flows

Day 4

11 a.m.–1 p.m. EDT

The fourth day will focus on special cases in fluid flow modeling. Topics will include:

  • Modeling non-Newtonian flow
  • Modeling porous media flow

2 p.m.–5 p.m. EDT

  • Best practices for CFD modeling
  • 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.
