Introduction to COMSOL

The first half of the workshop provides an overview of the COMSOL Multiphysics software - its capabilities, its new abilities and functionality enhancements, and its new, more efficient, user interface which we call the COMSOL Desktop. We will emphasize the mechanics of the model-builder user interface which not only is very efficient and quick to use, but also provides functionality to the user to modify and quickly adapt models to their own application. We will work through a multiphysics example to demonstrate the speed and efficiency of the COMSOL Desktop work flow.

Note: COMSOL Multiphysics now includes new modules. Come to the workshop to find out more about:

  • Multibody Dynamics Module
  • Wave Optics Module
  • Semiconductor Module
  • Molecular Flow Module
  • Electrochemistry Module
  • Mixer Module

Hands-on Tutorial

The second half of the seminar is a hands-on tutorial in COMSOL Multiphysics. It is directed at anyone who would like experience with the COMSOL Desktop. We will set up and solve a simple multiphysics problem designed to make you quickly proficient in COMSOL Multiphysics latest version thus enabling you to use the included 2-week free trial on your own models. Come and experience the power and efficiency of COMSOL Multiphysics!

Who Should Attend
