Objective

The four-day class is a comprehensive introduction to solving problems using COMSOL Multiphysics.  AltaSim’s instructors use their experience to teach the practical aspects of using COMSOL Multiphysics including:

  • COMSOL Multiphysics interface
  • Geometry development
  • Meshing
  • Physics set up
  • Solver selection
  • Post-processing

The class offers a combination of presentations, demonstrations, workshops, one-on-one instruction and individual problems.  Practical demonstrations and workshops are designed to reinforce the concepts and techniques.

 

Training emphasizes practical skills and techniques essential for multiphysics analysis reinforced by useful tips and insight from staff that use COMSOL Multiphysics on a daily basis.  On completion you will be proficient in the skills to use COMSOL Multiphysics to analyze your own multiphysics problems.

Day 3, 8:30am – 5:00pm

Concepts and practices for mesh generation and guidelines for mesh refinement and efficient problem solution in the presence of large gradients will be discussed.  In addition, criteria for selection of the required problem type and appropriate solvers and solver settings will be provided.  The following items will be covered:

  • Different methods for mesh generation
  • Approaches customized mesh generation and refinement
  • Guidelines for mesh refinement required for various problems
  • Selection of relevant problem type
  • Solver configuration
  • Customized solver set up
  • Best practices for solver selection

Hands-on examples and demonstrations will be used to support the content.

Day 4, 8:30am – 3:00pm

Options for post-processing and visualization will be covered.  The following items will be addressed:

  • Post processing of analysis results
  • Viewing different plot representations of results
  • Exporting images and tabular data
  • Generation of animations
  • Set-up, solution and analysis of specific problems of interest to the individual participant
  • Multiphysics simulations

Participants will work through example problems of the different approaches before engaging in one-on-one discussion of individual analyses of specific interest.

Who should attend

Solving COMSOL Multiphysics problems is ideal for people with little or no experience using the software with an engineering, physics, mathematics or science background. No previous experience with COMSOL Multiphysics is required, but some basic knowledge of the scientific principles being applied is desirable.
