COMSOL Launches Open-Access Learning Center for Multiphysics Modeling
Simulation software company launches learning center with an extensive collection of on-demand learning resources.
BURLINGTON, MA (June 1) — COMSOL, the developer of the COMSOL Multiphysics® simulation software, has introduced a new online resource that provides free and open access to modeling and simulation learning material across all areas of physics.
The Learning Center offers a single entry point for users of all skill levels, where courses, articles, and videos present a clear path for learning how to use COMSOL Multiphysics® for modeling and simulation. It was designed with the user in mind: Categories and filters aid in finding resources and materials that match a topic of interest.
"The new Learning Center makes it easier to find the right resources for each user," says Amelia Halliday, product information engineering manager at COMSOL. "The broad scope of the content and the on-demand format helps users learn what they need, just when they need it."
The Learning Center currently includes ten multipart courses, from introductory to advanced concepts. The "Getting Started with COMSOL Multiphysics®" course covers the fundamentals of using the COMSOL® software. The exercise files and resources included in that course help users gradually build essential skills and feature both step-by-step and more open-ended examples. The course familiarizes learners with the modeling workflow, efficient modeling and simulation techniques, and how to build a simulation application based on a model.
The multipart courses cover topics such as:
- Defining Multiphysics Models
- Introduction to Electro-Thermal-Mechanical Modeling
- Using Swept Meshes for Model Geometries
- Modeling Partial Differential Equations in COMSOL Multiphysics®
All content in the Learning Center, whether it be a multipart course or a standalone resource, offers a structured learning experience, in the form of articles, tutorial videos, model files, modeling exercises, and step-by-step instructions.
"COMSOL's mission is to provide easy-to-use software solutions to engineering problems and to help our users get the most out of our products," says Andrew Griesmer, product information director at COMSOL. "The Learning Center supports the second half of our mission. Our goal is to make it easy for users to acquire the modeling skills they need for their current and future simulation projects."
COMSOL is a global provider of simulation software for product design and research to technical enterprises, research labs, and universities. Its COMSOL Multiphysics® product is an integrated software environment for creating physics-based models and simulation apps. A particular strength is its ability to account for coupled or multiphysics phenomena. Add-on products expand the simulation platform for electromagnetics, structural, acoustics, fluid flow, heat transfer, and chemical applications. Interfacing tools enable the integration of COMSOL Multiphysics® simulations with all major technical computing and CAD tools on the CAE market. Simulation experts rely on COMSOL Compiler™ and COMSOL Server™ to deploy applications to their design teams, manufacturing departments, test laboratories, and customers throughout the world. Founded in 1986, COMSOL has 17 offices worldwide and extends its reach with a network of distributors.
