Tutorial Details: COMSOL Introduction and Live Demo

Date: Tuesday, April 14, 2009, 09:00 am - 11:00 am
Location: 402 Walter
Instructor(s): Walter Frei, COMSOL, Inc.

This seminar will present the power of COMSOL Multiphysics for finite element modeling of various phenomena. A step-by-step introduction to the finite element modeling process will be shown on a model that combines electro-thermal heating and structural mechanics.

The capabilities of COMSOL in other areas will be presented, specifically in electromagnetics, structural mechanics, heat transfer, fluid flow, and chemical engineering. Time-permitting, more advanced topics will be covered, including acoustics, piezoelectric modeling, multiphase flow modeling, and using COMSOL on supercomputers, as well as the new features of COMSOL Multiphysics 3.5a.
