Parallel Sessions
Introduction to COMSOL Multiphysics® Presentation/Demo

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 geometry creation, setting up physics, meshing, solving, and postprocessing.

New Features in COMSOL® 5.4 Presentation/Demo

Come to this session to hear about the new features in COMSOL Multiphysics® version 5.4 and to learn how they can be incorporated into your existing multiphysics models.

9:45 a.m.
Coffee Break
10:00 a.m.
Parallel Sessions
CFD and Heat Transfer Presentation/Demo

In this guided, hands-on session, we will walk you through an example of modeling fluid flow and give a quick overview of using the CFD Module for laminar, turbulent, and high Mach number flow; non-Newtonian, multiphase, and nonisothermal flows; and flow in mixers. Learn how to accurately model thermal characteristics of systems that include heat transfer by conduction, convection, and radiation. We will review how you can model and optimize systems that include phase change, bioheating, electronic cooling, thermally induced stresses, and thin thermal barriers.

Electromagnetic Heating Minicourse

Learn how to model electromagnetic heating for low- and high-frequency electromagnetics applications. Important electromagnetic heating phenomena covered include Joule heating, induction heating, RF heating, and laser heating.

11:00 a.m.
Coffee Break

Find out how COMSOL is revolutionizing computational modeling with the Application Builder, COMSOL Server™, and COMSOL Compiler™. These tools allow you to quickly and easily deploy customized, standalone solutions that match your specific simulation needs.

Parallel Sessions
Multiphysics in Electromagnetics Panel Discussion

Combining electromagnetics simulations with the effects of heat transfer, structural mechanics, and fluid flow is important to get a competitive advantage in designing next generation electromagnetic and electronics components. In this session, a panel of users from industry and COMSOL will share their experiences working with modeling and simulation, as well as answer technical questions related to the use of COMSOL Multiphysics®.

Moderated by: Aline Tomasian, COMSOL, Inc.

Acoustics-Structure Interactions Presentation/Demo

Learn about the Acoustics Module and how it can be used to model sounds waves, their propagation, and their interaction with solids at both small and large scales. Use cases include nondestructive testing, speakers, microphones, and sonar.

Parallel Sessions
Transducers in Acoustics and MEMS Panel Discussion

The design requirements on transducers within acoustics and MEMS applications are continuously more challenging to meet. Whether for smart devices or high-power SONAR applications, the need for simulation is as great as ever. In this session, a panel of users from industry and COMSOL will share their experiences working with modeling and simulation and answer technical questions related to the use of the COMSOL Multiphysics® software.

Moderated by: Kyle Koppenhoefer, AltaSim Technologies

Low-Frequency Electromagnetics Presentation/Demo

The AC/DC Module is used for modeling Maxwell's equations in the low-frequency regime. Find out how this tool applies to the modeling of resistive and capacitive devices, inductors and coils, as well as motors and magnets.
