At COMSOL Day Government, you will experience technical sessions and demonstrations geared toward governmental applications, panel discussions with engineers from the U.S. Navy and contractors, and a keynote talk from Northrop Grumman Corporation (NGC).
This free, 1-day event also gives you a chance to meet other simulation specialists in government work, as well as COMSOL technical and sales staff.
Join us for COMSOL Day Government on November 7 in Washington, D.C. Sign up today and feel free to invite your colleagues.
This introductory demonstration will show you the fundamental workflow of the COMSOL Multiphysics® modeling environment. We will cover all of the key modeling steps, including geometry creation, setting up physics, meshing, solving, and postprocessing.
Learn about new features in the latest version of COMSOL Multiphysics®, including how they can be incorporated into your multiphysics models.
Learn how to model electromagnetic heating for low- and high-frequency electromagnetics applications. Important electromagnetic heating phenomena covered include Joule heating, induction heating, RF heating, and laser heating.
- Chemical kinetics and reaction engineering capabilities, including batch/CSTR/plug flow reactors, CHEMKIN® file import, and import of thermodynamic data
- Chemical species transport through diffusion, convection, and migration in electric fields. Reacting flow that involves fluid flow, heat transfer, and mass transfer with reactions
- Mixing and reactions in rotating machinery, including the frozen rotor study
In this session, we will cover the use of the RF Module, Wave Optics Module, and Ray Optics Module for simulating high-frequency electromagnetic waves and rays. Covered topics include the analysis of microwave, photonics, and optical components including waveguides, antennas, lenses, and high-power laser systems. We will also address the coupling of electromagnetics simulations to other physics, such as heat transfer, including RF heating and STOP analysis.
Are you interested in modeling flow through valves or medical (e.g., cardiovascular) devices where the solid structure and the surrounding fluid interact? If so, then attend this session to learn about modeling fluid-structure interaction (FSI) in COMSOL Multiphysics®. In this session, we will provide an overview of the fluid flow modeling capabilities of COMSOL Multiphysics®, including modeling single-phase flows, whether in the laminar or turbulent regime; multiphase flows; and flow through porous media and rotating machinery.
Electromagnetics simulations are widely used to design and optimize electromagnetic devices that work at low and high frequencies. In this session, a panel of users from industry and COMSOL will share their experiences working with modeling and simulation, as well as answer technical questions related to the use of COMSOL Multiphysics®.

Learn about nonlinear structural analysis, including geometric nonlinearity, buckling, contact, and nonlinear structural material models. We will illustrate nonlinear material modeling via example models and demonstrate a nonlinear structural analysis in COMSOL Multiphysics®. We will also discuss best practices for nonlinear structural modeling for application areas such as geometric nonlinearity and contact analysis.
Learn how to use the Application Builder and Method Editor to automate your model building, including setting up the geometry, material properties, loads and boundary conditions; meshing; solving; and extracting data.
Learn about the Acoustics Module and how it can be used to model wave propagation in different types of materials, including fluids, solids, porous media, and piezoelectric devices. We will demonstrate how you can use the built-in coupling features to solve an acoustic-structure interaction problem to calculate sound radiation by a vibrating device or determine the transmission of sound through an elastic structure. We will also discuss the aeroacoustics modeling capabilities included in the Acoustics Module.

Shape optimization involves the free-form deformation of your CAD part by means of the mesh and geometry deformation tools in COMSOL Multiphysics® and the Optimization Module. Using just a few control variables, you can quickly come up with improved designs. Topology optimization is used to come up with entirely novel designs by allowing the material distribution within the modeling domain to vary. These topics and related examples will be covered in this session.
Take the opportunity to discuss your applications with the COMSOL team and receive guidance for your modeling problems.
