Parallel Sessions
Introduction to COMSOL Multiphysics® for New Users

This introductory demonstration will show you the fundamental workflow of the COMSOL Multiphysics® modeling environment.

In this minicourse, we will cover all of the key modeling steps, including geometry creation, setting up the physics, meshing, solving, and postprocessing.

Best Practices for Using COMSOL Multiphysics® Minicourse

Build a sound foundation for your modeling work. This demonstration will illustrate best practices for the entire workflow in COMSOL Multiphysics® through geometry creation, setting up your physics, meshing, solving, and postprocessing the results.

COMSOL Keynote
Invited Speakers
Break for Lunch
Parallel Sessions
CFD Minicourse

The fluid modeling capabilities within the COMSOL Multiphysics® product suite range from laminar to turbulent to high Mach number flows. Learn how to combine fluid flow with other physics to model nonisothermal flows, chemical reactions, and fluid-structure interactions.

Structural Mechanics Minicourse

Get a brief overview of using the Structural Mechanics Module and its add-on modules within the COMSOL® software environment.

Parallel Sessions
Electromagnetics Minicourse

Get a brief overview of the electromagnetic modeling tools of COMSOL Multiphysics® with a focus on the AC/DC Module, RF Module, Wave Optics Module, and Ray Optics Module.

Automating Model Building Using the Application Builder Minicourse

Learn how to use the Application Builder and the Method Editor to automate your model building, including setting up the geometry, material properties, loads and boundary conditions; meshing; solving; and extracting data.

Coffee Break
Parallel Sessions
Advanced Materials Minicourse

In all areas, the materials used tend to become "intelligent", making it possible to obtain more efficient products. Shape memory alloys, composites, metamaterials, and piezomaterials are just a few examples. We will see how to implement these materials in COMSOL Multiphysics® models.

Heat Transfer Minicourse

Get a brief overview of using the Heat Transfer Module within the COMSOL® software environment.

Parallel Sessions
Solvers Minicourse

Learn the fundamental numerical techniques and underlying algorithms related to linear and nonlinear multiphysics simulations. We will cover the difference between iterative and direct solvers as well as how to take advantage of automatic solver suggestions in COMSOL Multiphysics®.

Postprocessing Minicourse

This minicourse will explore the tools for presenting COMSOL Multiphysics® results, including mirroring, revolving symmetric data, cut planes, cut lines, exporting data, joining or comparing multiple datasets, as well as animations.
