View All COMSOL Day Locations

Join us and fellow engineers from your region online for COMSOL Day Northeast. Listen to experts in the field of simulation, engage in product demonstrations, and ask questions to COMSOL technical staff. There will be interactive Tech Cafés run in parallel with the main sessions, covering high-frequency electromagnetics, chemical and electrochemical engineering, and simulating phenomena through specialized and tailor-made apps.

View our schedule below and register for free today!


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: High-Frequency Electromagnetics

Antennas, waveguides, metamaterials, and filters are just some of the high-frequency and microwave devices that will be discussed in this Tech Café. COMSOL engineers will be available to take your questions and suggest modeling techniques for simulating these and other devices.

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

Why I Like COMSOL Multiphysics® as a Simulation Platform

12:00 p.m.
Break for Lunch
12:30 p.m.
Welcome Back: Some Useful Resources
12:45 p.m.
Parallel Sessions
Low-Frequency Electromagnetics

Learn about the capabilities of the AC/DC Module for modeling Maxwell's equations in the low-frequency regime. Use cases include resistive and capacitive devices, inductors and coils, as well as motors and magnets.

Tech Café: Chemical and Electrochemical Engineering

This Tech Café will cover the modeling of many of the transport and reaction kinetic processes that describe applications within chemical and electrochemical engineering. You will be able to discuss these processes with COMSOL engineers and colleagues working within these fields, and hear how best to model them using COMSOL Multiphysics®.

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

Enhancing the Product Development Lifecycle with Advanced Simulation

2:15 p.m.
Parallel Sessions
Fluid Flow and Heat Transfer

Get an overview of using the CFD Module for laminar, turbulent, non-Newtonian, and multiphase flows as well as flow in microfluidic devices. We will discuss conjugate heat transfer with the combination of heat transfer in solids and heat transfer in fluids, including thermal radiation effects. These phenomena could also be coupled with structural mechanics, chemical reactions, and particle tracing.

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.
