9:30 a.m.
10:00 a.m.

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.

10:30 a.m.

We will discuss conjugate heat transfer with the combination of heat transfer in solids and porous media, as well as heat transfer in fluids, including thermal radiation effects. These phenomena could also be coupled with structural mechanics, chemical reactions, and particle tracing.

11:15 a.m.
Coffee Break
11:30 a.m.

Multiphysics Modeling of Instrument Transformers and Sensors

A brief introduction to multiphysics applications and the simulation of real-world devices will be presented.

12:00 p.m.
Break for Lunch
1:00 p.m.

In this session, we will explore capabilities for static and low-frequency electromagnetics simulations. We will learn how to model magnetic materials and coils. We will also discuss how to account for both electric and magnetic losses, which can be used to study electromagnetic heating.

1:45 p.m.
Coffee Break
2:00 p.m.

We will give an overview of using the CFD Module for laminar, turbulent, non-Newtonian, and multiphase and porous media flows as well as flow in mixers. These phenomena could also be coupled with structural mechanics, chemical reactions, and particle tracing.

2:45 p.m.
Coffee Break
3:00 p.m.

We will demonstrate the process of transforming fully defined models into specialized simulation applications and the various ways of deploying those applications.

3:15 p.m.
