Modeling System Dynamics of Ablation Therapy and Device

Peter Lyu, Rescale

Accelerate Your COMSOL Multiphysics® Simulation Through HPC in the Cloud

Advancement in multiphysics simulations and applications allows engineers to solve more complex engineering problems faster. A high-end workstation is no longer sufficient to solve simulations in a timely manner. High-performance computing on the cloud offers a variety of advantages to simulation engineers. Benefits include providing instantly scalable computing resources, an integrated environment with COMSOL Multiphysics® and COMSOL Server™, and fully automated deployment tools. Imagine the engineering challenges you could solve with unlimited cloud HPC resources?

In this talk, Peter Lyu will discuss how engineers and scientists are overcoming the constraints of traditional engineering resources and processes by deploying multiphysics simulations and applications to the cloud. This will be followed by a demo of running COMSOL® using cloud HPC.

Break for Lunch

We will perform a product demo of the RF Module and the couplings between RF and heat transfer physics.

Coffee Break

We will perform a product demo of the CFD Module with a focus on advanced features such as non-Newtonian fluids, multiphase flow, and fluid-structure interaction.
