Objective

This one-day course provides an introduction to the fundamentals of performing analyses of Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS). The course assumes participants have a working knowledge of COMSOL Multiphysics. The instructors will draw on their experience as COMSOL Certified Consultants solving a wide range of problems on a daily basis to teach you the practical aspects of developing solutions to complex computational models. Participants will understand the important material properties required for accurate simulation of MEMS. The unique boundary conditions and mesh refinements required for MEMS will be discussed in detail. Specific application to a range of models will be presented and supplemented by demonstration for different conditions of interest to engineers developing models of MEMS. On completion you will be proficient in setting up and solving analyses of a wide range of MEMS problems using COMSOL Multiphysics.

Day 1, 8:30am – 5:00pm

At the end of the class participants will have an understanding of the following items:

  • MEMS Interface
  • Damping in COMSOL
  • Biased resonators
  • Piezoelectricity
  • Advanced Modeling Methods

Instructors:

Instruction will be performed by experienced engineers who use COMSOL Multiphysics on a daily basis to solve a wide range of complex multiphysics problems. Among the instructors will be:

Sergei Yushanov:

Sergei has over thirty years experience in computational analysis and specializes in analysis of problems relating to electromagnetic, vibration, plasma and acoustic phenomena, structural, piezo-electric, and heat transfer. As a Senior Engineer at AltaSim he has been instrumental in the development and application of multiphysics analysis to problems in the Automotive, Aerospace, Medical Products, Consumer Products, and Energy markets.

Josh Thomas:

With over four years of computational analysis experience, Josh has a graduate level training in computational mechanics modeling specializing in microstructural analysis.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take to complete S3?
Study and Simulate are a function of Solve. The scope and complexity of the required solution will determine the time required to identify the root causes, isolate the critical parameters, and develop cross disciplinary/multifunction solutions that provide sustained benefit.
