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

Modeling Batteries

This presentation will show how COMSOL Multiphysics® can be used to model batteries, including an advanced example with fluid electrodes.

We will demonstrate calculations that involve many features of COMSOL Multiphysics®, including:

  • The Batteries & Fuel Cells Module
  • The Events interface
  • Parameter optimization including temperature effects
  • Coupling between non-Newtonian fluid flow and electrochemistry
  • Synchronization with MATLAB®
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
Parallel Training
Acoustics and Structural Mechanics Minicourse

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.

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.
