This course provides an introduction to the main aspectsof COMSOL Multiphysics. We begin at an introductory level, leading the attendees through all the phases in the work flow (geometry creation, meshing, physics setup, post-processing). A combination of guided hands-on exercises and lectures is used. The goal is to provide a basic knowledge and training in all of the main steps of using COMSOL Multiphysics so that the attendees can start working in their own projects with the software. The course will be held in English unless all attendees prefer Spanish.

Course Topics

• Introduction to the graphical user interface.
• Geometry modeling and drawing tools in 2D and 3D.
• Definitions and materials.
• Multiphysics: coupling different physical phenomena.
• Meshing.
• Basic study types.
• Post processing.

Suggested Background

This course is suitable for anyone interested in using COMSOL Multiphysics for the mathematical modelling of physical phenomena such as heat transfer, transport phenomena, fluid dynamics, electromagnetics, photonics, structural mechanics and acoustics. No previous experience with COMSOL Multiphysics is required.

PabloDr. Pablo García Sánchez, Department of Electronics and Electromagnetism, University of Sevilla. He currently works in the electromagnetic handling of micro-nano-particles, where the finite element method has become an important tool. He has been working also for consulting companies by evaluating the environmental impact of high-voltage lines with the use of COMSOL Multiphysics.

EmilioDr. Emilio Ruiz Reina, Department of Applied Physics II, University of Málaga. His research is mainly focused in the electrokinetics and rheology of concentrated nanoparticle suspensions and he successfully uses different numerical analysis methods. The collaboration with research groups and engineering companies in the field of finite element method simulations is among his regular activities, as well as the teaching in specialized courses about COMSOL Multiphysics.
