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.

Coffee Break

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.

Break for Lunch
CFD and Heat Transfer Minicourse

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

Low-Frequency Electromagnetics Minicourse

Explore the capabilities of COMSOL Multiphysics® for electromagnetics in the static and low-frequency regime with a focus on the AC/DC Module.

Coffee Break
Solvers and Meshing Minicourse

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

High-Frequency Electromagnetics Minicourse

Learn about modeling high-frequency electromagnetic waves using the RF Module, Wave Optics Module, and Ray Optics Module.

Coffee Break
Structural Mechanics and Acoustics Minicourse

Get a brief overview of using the Structural Mechanics Module and Acoustics Module within the COMSOL® software environment.

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.
