View All COMSOL Day Locations

Do you want to learn more about multiphysics modeling and how it can be used for research, teaching or product design? Visit the free COMSOL Day in Leuven to enhance your skills and knowledge!

Invited speakers from industry and research leaders will share their experience. Furthermore, several minicourses will teach you how to simulate:

  • Heat Transfer
  • Structural Mechanics
  • Acoustics
  • Fluid Mechanics
  • Electromagnetics
  • Solvers & Meshing
  • Optimization
  • Multiphysics

There will also be demo stations during the entire day, where COMSOL experts will be available to discuss your applications.

You will leave with new knowledge, inspiration and a free trial version to experiment with your own simulations in COMSOL Multiphysics®.

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 5.4.

From Model to Application Minicourse
Coffee Break
Invited Speaker
Parallel Training
CFD and Heat Transfer Minicourse

Get a quick overview of using the CFD Module and Heat Transfer Module within the COMSOL® software environment.

Best Practices for Using COMSOL Multiphysics®

The COMSOL Multiphysics® software supports your R&D and engineering with realistic physics-based models and simulations. But did you know that it also contains many tools to facilitate your modeling process and functionality to help you advance beyond everyday modeling? In this minicourse, we we will discuss and demonstrate the functionality available in the Definitions node of the Model Builder. This node includes probes, functions, interpolations, integration techniques, component couplings, and more.

Break for Lunch
Window Tour Cleanroom IMEC
Invited Speaker
Parallel Training
Structural Mechanics and Acoustics Minicourse

This minicourse will cover the rich physics involved in structural analysis and acoustics as well as the interactions between them. Interactive examples include transducers, speakers, microphones, SAW filters, smartphones, medical sensors, and many others. We will discuss the range of material models (linear and nonlinear) you can choose from; loading and support conditions; and linking between solids, shells, plates, and beams.

Optimization Minicourse

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.

Coffee Break
Parallel Training
Electromagnetics Minicourse

Get a brief overview of the electromagnetic modeling tools of COMSOL Multiphysics® with a focus on the AC/DC Module, RF Module, Wave Optics Module, and Ray Optics Module.

Solvers and Meshing Minicourse

Explore the meshing techniques that are available in the COMSOL Multiphysics® software and learn about different solver and study types.
