COMSOL Midwest Meeting

COMSOL Midwest Meeting

July 22, 2015

Columbus, OH


AltaSim Technologies is joining with COMSOL to bring you the COMSOL Midwest Meeting, an all-day event where you can learn more about modeling with COMSOL Multiphysics® and advance your skills in multiphysics simulation. Together, we will be introducing the Application Builder, and teaching a variety of sessions which will allow you to see how your peers are working with simulations.


AltaSim Technologies will be on site all day, teaching several sessions and interacting with participants. Below is a list of the sessions we will be delivering:


9:45 – 11:15 AM      Meshing by Joshua Thomas
In this minicourse you will learn techniques for efficient meshing (an important skill for computationally demanding models). Specific topics will include CAD clean-up and how to combine swept meshing with unstructured free meshing in the same geometry. You will also learn how to define virtual mesh features for precise local mesh refinement.

9:45 – 11:15 AM      Electromagnetics Modeling by Sergei Yushanov
Learn about the scope of COMSOL Multiphysics® for modeling of electromagnetic problems. The functionality of the core package, the AC/DC, RF, Wave Optics, and Ray Optics Modules will be covered for simulation of problems involving electromagnetic fields in static, transient, low frequency and high frequency regimes.


2:45 – 4:15 PM      Best Practices in Multiphysics Analysis by Joshua Thomas
COMSOL Multiphysics® provides unique capabilities to solve Multiphysics problems via numerical methods. This minicourse will examine the best practices for coupling and solving Multiphysics problems using COMSOL Multiphysics. The Multiphysics modeling node will be reviewed along with methods of coupling physics that are not available within this modeling node. Sequential and intimate coupling strategies will be discussed, and the use of fully coupled and segregated solvers will be reviewed.


2:45 – 4:15 PM      CFD and Heat Modeling by Luke Gritter
Learn about using COMSOL Multiphysics® for modeling of conjugate heat transfer problems. This minicourse will include a discussion on heat transfer in fluids and solids. For convective heat transfer in fluids, the laminar and turbulent capabilities available within the Heat Transfer Module will be reviewed. These models include k-ε, k-Ω, Algebraic yPlus, L-VEL and low-Reynolds k-ε. Topics for radiative heat transfer include surface-to-surface radiation and radiation in participating media.


2:45 – 4:15 PM      Acoustics & Vibrations Modeling by Sergei Yushanov
Acoustic pressure waves in fluids such as air or water interact with surrounding structures resulting in vibrations in solids and absorption in porous materials. The Acoustics Module can simulation these waves and their effects. Recent news and additions to the module are also presented. Application areas include, but are not limited to: muffler design, mobile devices, transducer design, loudspeakers, pipe acoustics, sound insulation materials, acoustic scattering, transmission, and radiation phenomena.

4:30 – 6:00 PM     Multi-Phase Flow by Luke Gritter
This minicourse examines the two-phase flow capabilities available in the CFD Module for COMSOL Multiphysics®. Topics will include bubbly flow, Euler-Euler Modeling, Level-Set and Phase Field methodologies for representing two-phase flow. The solution methods for representing stationary and time-dependent solutions will be introduced. In addition, modeling of rotating machinery with mixture models will be discussed.



This information-packed event is being held at the Bridgewater Banquet & Conference Center,
10561 Sawmill Parkway, Powell, OH 43065. Bring a laptop to the event in order to gain the most hands-on experience, as this will allow you to start a FREE, two-week trial of COMSOL Multiphysics® software.
