8:50 a.m.

Please join us 10 minutes before the presentation starts to settle in and make sure that your audio and visual capabilities are working.

9:00 a.m.

To start, we will briefly discuss the format of the day and go over the logistics for using GoToMeeting.

9:05 a.m.

See how you can deploy the power of high-fidelity simulation to engineers, designers, operators, and scientists throughout your organization.

9:30 a.m.

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

10:15 a.m.
10:30 a.m.
Parallel Sessions
Acoustic-Structure Interaction

Learn about the Acoustics Module and how it can be used to model sounds waves, their propagation, and their interaction with solids at both small and large scales. Use cases include nondestructive testing, speakers, microphones, and sonar.

Tech Café: CFD and Heat Transfer

Join COMSOL engineers and your colleagues to discuss modeling fluid flow and heat transfer using COMSOL Multiphysics®. Ask questions about modeling techniques and the appropriate features and settings in the software to model such phenomena, as well as how best to model your specific applications.

11:15 a.m.
11:30 a.m.

Use of COMSOL Multiphysics® in the Thermal Performance of Building Enclosures

12:00 p.m.
Break for Lunch
12:30 p.m.
Welcome Back: Some Useful Resources
12:45 p.m.
Parallel Sessions
Electromagnetic Heating

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.

Tech Café: Electrochemical Engineering

Participate in an open forum with colleagues and COMSOL engineers to discuss applications within the field of electrochemical engineering, such as batteries, fuel cells, electrodeposition, and corrosion. COMSOL technical staff will be available to answer questions about your applications and suggest the best modeling techniques.

1:30 p.m.
1:45 p.m.

Large Eco-Energetic Buildings: Virtual Prototyping Using COMSOL®

2:15 p.m.
Parallel Sessions

Get a brief overview of the COMSOL Multiphysics® software, with a focus on the field of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS).

Tech Café: Simulation Apps

Simulation apps enable you to expand your modeling and give more control to your colleagues who require simulations for their designs and processes. You can create user-specific modeling environments that are best suited to their simulation needs while also being easy enough for them to use, even if they are not modeling experts. During this Tech Café, you can discuss how best to develop simulation apps with COMSOL engineers, who will also be answering your specific questions.

3:00 p.m.
3:15 p.m.

Get an overview of the shape and topology optimization capabilities available in the COMSOL® software for producing lightweight and more efficient designs. Shape optimization involves the free-form deformation of a CAD part by means of the mesh and geometry deformation tools in COMSOL Multiphysics® and the Optimization Module. Using just a few control variables, you can quickly come up with improved designs. Topology optimization is used to come up with entirely novel designs by allowing the material distribution within the modeling domain to vary.
