Best Practices for Using COMSOL Multiphysics®

Build a sound foundation for your modeling work. This demonstration will illustrate best practices for the entire workflow in COMSOL Multiphysics® through geometry creation, setting up your physics, meshing, solving, and postprocessing the results.

Introduction to COMSOL Multiphysics® and the Model Builder

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

Electromagnetics Minicourse

Get a brief overview of the electromagnetic modeling tools of COMSOL Multiphysics® with a focus on the AC/DC Module, RF Module, Wave Optics Module, and Ray Optics Module.

Acoustics and Structural Mechanics

Get a brief overview of using the Acoustics Module and Structural Mechanics Module within the COMSOL® software environment.

02:00 pm
CFD and Heat Transfer Minicourse

Get a quick overview of using the CFD Module and Heat Transfer Module within the COMSOL® software environment.

Batteries and Fuel Cells

Learn how to model electrochemical cells, including charge transport and electrode reactions, and get an introduction to the corresponding couplings to mass transport, heat transport, and fluid flow.

Coffee Break
03:15 pm
Solvers Minicourse

Learn the fundamental numerical techniques and underlying algorithms related to linear and nonlinear multiphysics simulations. We will cover the difference between iterative and direct solvers as well as the different study types including stationary, transient, and eigenfrequency analysis.

Optimization Minicourse

Learn to use gradient-based optimization techniques and constraint equations to define and solve problems in shape, parameter, and topology optimization, as well as inverse modeling. The techniques shown are applicable for almost all types of models.

04:00 pm
Composite Materials Minicourse

The Composite Materials Module enables the multiphysics simulation of composite structures. In this minicourse, you will learn how to model smart composite materials, fiber-reinforced plastics, laminated panels, and sandwich panels.

Postprocessing Minicourse

This minicourse will explore the tools for presenting COMSOL Multiphysics® results, including mirroring, revolving symmetric data, cut planes, cut lines, exporting data, joining or comparing multiple datasets, as well as animations.
