Welcoming Remarks
10:10 AM

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 geometries, setting up physics, meshing, solving, and postprocessing. We will also highlight new features in COMSOL Multiphysics® version 5.4.

11:10 AM
  • Why simulation apps are effective teaching tools
  • Converting a COMSOL Multiphysics® model into an app and sharing it with students via COMSOL Server™
  • Using simple physics-based apps to help students develop an intuitive understanding of the problem at hand

CFD and Heat Transfer Minicourse

During this minicourse, we will walk you through an example of modeling fluid flow and give a quick overview of using the CFD Module for laminar, turbulent, and high Mach number flow; non-Newtonian, multiphase, and nonisothermal flows; and flow in mixers. You will also learn how to accurately model the thermal characteristics of systems that include heat transfer by conduction, convection, and radiation. In addition, we will discuss how you can model and optimize systems that include phase change, bioheating, electronic cooling, thermally induced stresses, and thin thermal barriers.

Electromagnetics Minicourse

In this session, you will see that you can model the full range of electromagnetics with the COMSOL Multiphysics® software, including electrostatics and DC conductors; medium-frequency inductors, capacitors, coils, motors, and generators; as well as high-frequency antennas, RF waves, and optics. This minicourse gives an overview of this broad spectrum, paying special attention to linking electromagnetics to other physics.

Chemical Reaction Engineering and Electrochemistry Minicourse

In this minicourse, we will go over chemical engineering examples ranging from system-level reaction kinetics models to process models that include the effects of mass, momentum, and energy transport. We will also discuss cost-effective ways to understand and optimize electrochemical systems such as batteries, fuel cells, electrolysis, corrosion, and electrodeposition.

Structural Mechanics and Acoustics Minicourse

This minicourse will cover the rich physics involved in structural analysis and acoustics as well as the interactions between them. Interactive examples include transducers, speakers, microphones, SAW filters, smartphones, medical sensors, and many others. We will discuss the range of material models (linear and nonlinear) you can choose from; loading and support conditions; and linking between solids, shells, plates, and beams.
