Creating Equation-Based Simulation Apps

Thursday, April 16th at 2:00pm EDT

In this webinar you will learn to customize multiphysics simulations using equation-based modeling in the COMSOL® environment. Develop models using systems of 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. Couple custom equations with other built-in physics interfaces for a powerful approach to modeling that eliminates the need for user-written subroutines. Develop simulation apps based on custom equations directly in COMSOL.


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. Similar to the physics interfaces available in COMSOL, mathematics interfaces Mathematics interfaces provide templates for entering equations directly.

Several customization approaches and applications will be demonstrated in COMSOL throughout the webinar. Application examples include phase change, time-dependent loads and sources, custom materials definitions, and a PDE model for analyzing the performance of a compression seal for the sealing of fluids, and how to build a simulation app.

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 instruction 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. 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, including examples that include the sealing of fluids and compression seal behavior
  • 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
