This two-day course provides an introduction to solving acoustic problems using COMSOL Multiphysics and details best practices for obtaining high quality solutions. Problem types examined span a wide range from classical pressure acoustics to advanced topics such as time domain solutions, geometric acoustics, acoustophoresis and aeroacoustics. It is expected that participants will have a working knowledge of COMSOL Multiphysics before attending. AltaSim’s instructors will draw on their experience as COMSOL Certified Consultants solving a wide range of acoustic problems on a daily basis to teach you the practical aspects of performing realistic analysis of acoustic problems. The course covers acoustic problems starting with the PDEs that describe classic acoustics, and examines how to solve these problems in COMSOL Multiphysics using specially developed techniques and features available within COMSOL Multiphysics.    On completion you will be proficient in setting up and solving analyses of a wide range of acoustic problems using COMSOL Multiphysics.


The cost of this two-day course is $1350 per person.

Who should attend

This course is intended for people who seek to analyze acoustic problems  using COMSOL Multiphysics. It is expected that attendees will have an existing knowledge of the structure of COMSOL Multiphysics and will possess a relevant engineering, physics, mathematics or science background.

Day 1, 9:00am – 5:00pm

An initial overview will be provided of the governing equations of acoustic problems and the relevant techniques required for numerical analysis. Detailed consideration will be given to the selection and implementation of the relevant boundary conditions required for accurate analysis. At the end of Day 1 participants will have an understanding of the following items:

  • Modeling features specific to acoustic problems
  • Classic pressure acoustics
  • Poroelastic waves
  • Thermoviscous acoustic problems

Day 2, 8:30am – 5:00pm

The second day will extend the content introduced on the first day by examining solution techniques for other advanced acoustic problems using COMSOL Multiphysics. At the end of Day 2 participants will have an understanding of the following items:

  • Acoustophoresis
  • Geometrical acoustics
  • Aeroacoustics
  • Acoustic problems in the time domain


Instruction will be performed by experienced engineers who use COMSOL Multiphysics on a daily basis to solve a wide range of complex multiphysics problems. Among the instructors will be:

Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take to complete S3?
Study and Simulate are a function of Solve. The scope and complexity of the required solution will determine the time required to identify the root causes, isolate the critical parameters, and develop cross disciplinary/multifunction solutions that provide sustained benefit.
