High-Throughput Multiphysics and Multiscale Simulations in COMSOL®

Available On Demand until May 25, 2018

If you want to learn about high-throughput multiphysics and multiscale simulations, then tune into this webinar with guest speaker Ed Furlani from the University at Buffalo. 

From discoveries in basic science to the development of next-generation commercial technology, high-throughput multiphysics and multiscale simulations are needed to study complex and coupled phenomena that span multiple length and time scales. 

In this live webinar, we will demonstrate high-performance modeling and simulation using the COMSOL Multiphysics® and COMSOL Server™ software, which are used in the University at Buffalo’s Center for Computational Research (CCR), a leading academic supercomputing facility. We will discuss implementing programs on CCR clusters and demonstrate using the Application Builder in COMSOL Multiphysics®. The Application Builder enables nonspecialists to run simulation studies using a custom-designed graphical user interface that hides the underlying computational model. This is especially attractive to companies that want to accelerate the development cycle using modeling, but cannot justify hiring a full-time resident expert. We will further demonstrate using COMSOL Server™ to access and manage simulation applications. 

The presentation will be reinforced with case studies in the fields of nanophotonics, magnetohydrodynamics, and biomedical applications of electromagnetics and electrochemistry. We will present a variety of industrial modeling projects that involve 3D additive manufacturing using liquid metal printing, inductive-loop sensing technology for traffic control, and electrical stimulation therapy for wound and prosthetic implant treatment. You can ask questions at the end of the webinar during the Q&A session.
