This introductory demonstration will show you the fundamental workflow of the COMSOL Multiphysics® modeling environment. We will cover all of the key modeling steps, including creating geometries, setting up physics, meshing, solving, and postprocessing. We will also highlight new features in COMSOL Multiphysics® version 5.3a.
Paving the Way Toward Invisible Hearing Implants
Hearing aids amplify and transmit sound through the ear canal to the middle ear. In contrast, the fully implantable Carina® System couples directly to the structures of the middle ear and transmits sound straight to the inner ear. During this talk, it will be demonstrated how the COMSOL Multiphysics® software was used to support the development of the different system components: a subcutaneous microphone that captures the sound through the skin, the microdrive actuator that drives the ossicles, and the inductive link to power the implant.

In this minicourse, you will learn about using the RF Module, Wave Optics Module, and Ray Optics Module for optics and photonics applications.
Explore the meshing techniques that are available in the COMSOL Multiphysics® software and learn about different solver and study types.
COMSOL® Project: Ray Tracing
In the last decades, research concerning the design and development of photocatalytic reactors was mainly dominated by using homogeneous light sources like mercury lamps and xenon lamps. Lately, due to the development of efficient LED sources, research in photocatalysis is shifting toward the use of LED sources for photocatalytic reactor design. LEDs are point sources, and if we want to achieve a homogeneous irradiance field, which is the case for mercury lamps, proper design of the LED source is needed and multiple LEDs need to be placed in an array. The design of the LED source and the LED characteristics became an important design step in the development of a photocatalytic reactor. Emission profile, emission angle, LED to LED distance, and heat development are the most important parameters and will determine the source-reactor distance. This presentation will elaborate more on using ray tracing in the COMSOL® software to model the emission profiles of the complete light source. This talk will specifically address two case studies that I had to deal with during my PhD up until now.
Get a brief overview of using the Acoustics Module and Structural Mechanics Module within the COMSOL® software environment.
Learn to use gradient-based optimization techniques and constraint equations to define and solve problems in shape, parameter, and topology optimization, as well as inverse modeling. The techniques shown are applicable for almost all types of models.
Get a quick overview of using the CFD Module and Heat Transfer Module within the COMSOL® software environment.
Learn how to convert a model into a custom app using the Application Builder, which is included in the COMSOL Multiphysics® software. You can upload your apps to a COMSOL Server™ installation to access and run the apps from anywhere within your organization.
Explore the capabilities of COMSOL Multiphysics® for electromagnetics in the static and low-frequency regime with a focus on the AC/DC Module.
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.
