Creating Equation-Based Simulation Apps
Thursday, April 14, 2016 - 2:00pm EDT

In this webinar you will learn how to create custom multiphysics simulations using equation-based modeling in the COMSOL environment and wrap the models in user-friendly interfaces. You can develop simulation apps using linear or nonlinear partial differential equations (PDEs), ordinary differential equations (ODEs), and algebraic equations to add custom features to your models including your own multiphysics couplings, material properties, boundary conditions, and parameterized geometric dimensions. You can also couple custom equations with other built-in physics interfaces for a powerful approach that eliminates user-written subroutines, and build and deploy customized applications using the Application Builder and COMSOL Server.

Through equation-based modeling, COMSOL Multiphysics® is easily customizable and adaptable. The COMSOL Product Suite features over 40 add-on modules and predefined physics interfaces to facilitate your model setup. However, COMSOL recognizes that highly specialized applications and innovation may require more flexibility.

For any model geometry including 1D, 2D, and industrial-scale 3D CAD models, you will learn how to enter and apply the coefficient, general, and weak forms of PDEs such as Poisson’s equation with Dirichlet boundary conditions. Demonstrations feature helpful instructions on analyzing and visualizing your results, including more advanced forms of data analysis enabled by combining multiple types of equations to calculate useful performance metrics.

The Application Builder makes it easy to expand the power of simulation to a wider audience within your organization. You can also create your own specialized user interface that incorporates legacy code and libraries that you have written in-house for specific modeling applications.

A Q&A session will conclude the webinar.

Attend this webinar to:
  • Watch demonstrations in COMSOL Multiphysics® that show you how to use equation-based modeling to customize your multiphysics simulations
  • Learn about customization approaches and how to combine your custom equations with built-in physics interfaces to create many unique multiphysics couplings
  • Leverage the power and flexibility of COMSOL to create custom materials definitions, multiphysics couplings, boundary conditions and parameterized geometries without the need for user-written subroutines
  • Learn how to quickly build simulation apps based on your custom equations
