Introduction to COMSOL Multiphysics®

December 7–10, 2021 11:00 a.m. EST

Back to Events Calendar

This course is the recommended starting point for learning how to use the COMSOL Multiphysics® software. During this training course, you will develop a strong foundation for your future multiphysics modeling work. We start at an introductory level, leading students through the essential steps needed in all analyses (geometry creation, interactive meshing techniques, model setup, postprocessing, etc.) Then, we move into more advanced topics, such as solution techniques and multiphysics modeling.

To teach this course, we use a combination of instructor- and self-guided hands-on exercises as well as theoretical and practical lectures. The goal is to immerse you in all of the main aspects of using COMSOL Multiphysics®, so that you feel comfortable working with the software. You will leave the course feeling confident that you are correctly solving your simulation problems with COMSOL Multiphysics®.

After 2 days of class, there will be a 1-day gap where trainees work on assigned exercises and explore features in the software related to their own application areas. This course is the web version of the 2-day COMSOL Multiphysics® Intensive training course. It aims to provide the same material online for attendees that cannot travel to course locations.
