For Leiden PhD students, postdocs and PI's: COMSOL Multiphysics Free Introduction Course



10:00-16:00 hrs


Leiden, Huygens Lab 204


This course provides an introduction to COMSOL Multiphysics. We start at an introductory level, then address topics needed in some analyses to finally progress into some advanced topics in multiphysics simulations. We will use a combination of lecture, worked examples as well as workshop problems. The goal is to immerse the student in all of the main aspects of using COMSOL so that he or she can feel comfortable with most of the commands accessible from the user interface and confident that they can be productive solving simulation problems with COMSOL.
  By considering a variety of models we will bring out points to help you get the most out of each step in the modeling process. In particular we will consider...
  • Modeling with COMSOL Multiphysics
  • Geometry modeling in 2D and 3D
  • Specifying physics condition
  • Couplings between physics
  • Using expressions
  • Controlling mesh generation
  • Analysis type and solver choices
  • Post-processing options
According to the length of the course and the interests of the participants, some or all of the above will be considered.
Intended Audience  
  This course is intended for the new users of COMSOL Multiphysics at the Leiden University.
Suggested Background  
  The course is suitable for anyone interested in using COMSOL Multiphysics for the mathematical modeling of physics phenomena such as heat transfer, transport phenomena, fluid dynamics, electromagnetics, photonics, structural mechanics, and acoustics. No previous experience with COMSOL Multiphysics is required.
  Seating is limited, so registration in advance is required. Please register using this form. Upon registration you will receive an email confirmation.

To get the most of the course, please make sure you bring your laptop along. You will be given the opportunity to install a 14-day trial version.
