We will demonstrate the process of transforming fully defined models into specialized simulation applications and the various ways of deploying those applications.
Microfluidic Devices Modeling in COMSOL Multiphysics®
Modeling and simulation are key components of the engineering development process, providing a rational, systematic method to engineer and optimize products and dramatically accelerate the development cycle over a pure intuition-driven, empirical testing approach. Modeling and simulation help to identify key parameters related to product performance (“what to try”) as well as insignificant parameters or conditions related to poor outcomes (“what not to try”). For microfluidic devices, modeling and simulation can inform the design and integration of common components such as micropumps, manifolds, and channel networks. Modeling and simulation may also be used to estimate a range of processes occurring within the fluid bulk and near cells, including shear stresses, transport of nutrients and waste, chemical reactions, heat transfer, and surface tension and wetting effects.
In this talk, I will discuss how an array of modeling tools, such as scaling arguments, analytical formulas, and simulations in the COMSOL Multiphysics® software, may be leveraged to address these microfluidic device development issues. I will also work through a few examples in detail, including modeling a microfluidic organ-on-a-chip device, and talk about case studies relating to microfluidic device simulation.
Using Simulation to Access Difficult-to-Measure Conditions
Frequently, laboratory setups encounter difficult-to-measure conditions that are important to the overall performance of a system. Simulation is an important tool for exploring these parameters and for enhancing the understanding of very dynamic systems. Two examples will be used to highlight how the COMSOL Multiphysics® software can be used to access difficult-to-measure parameters. In one example, the pH gradient induced by electrokinetic separation in a microfluidic device is calculated. This example shows how the selection and optimization of buffer components impact the pH profile. In the second example, particle trajectories in a high-temperature gas-solid reactor are calculated to understand the impact of various design options. Particle trajectories are used to minimize the likelihood of particles impinging on walls and to understand the time-temperature experience of particles in the reactor.
Empowering Sales Through COMSOL® Applications
Viega engineers have put COMSOL® applications directly in the hands of their sales force, creating a seamless design process. Several radiant heating and cooling designs will be reviewed where COMSOL® applications have been created to demonstrate complex models to remote customers around the U.S. and Canada.
Get a brief overview of using the Acoustics Module and Structural Mechanics Module within the COMSOL® software environment.
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 creating the geometry, setting up the physics, meshing, solving, and postprocessing.
We will present a general introduction to the Semiconductor Module for device physics simulation, with an emphasis on practical aspects of the modeling workflow.
Learn how to model mass, momentum, and energy transport in order to simulate nonisothermal flow including chemical reactions in COMSOL Multiphysics®.
Learn how to model electromagnetic heating for low- and high-frequency electromagnetics applications. Important electromagnetic heating phenomena covered include Joule heating, induction heating, RF heating, and laser heating.
In this session, you will see how high-frequency electromagnetic simulation with the RF Module, an add-on to the COMSOL Multiphysics® software, can help your future designs for 5G and internet of things (IoT) applications as well as satellite communication (SatCom).
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.
In this session, we will learn about modeling tools available in COMSOL Multiphysics® to simulate piezoelectric devices such as transducers, actuators, harvesters, etc. We will learn the modeling steps required for piezoelectric simulations and multiphysics couplings such as coupling with pressure acoustics as well as coupling with fluid flow and electrical circuits.
