12:30 pm

Introduction to COMSOL Multiphysics and Hands-on Demo

  • Discover the capabilities and features of COMSOL Multiphysics and get a quick overview of the add-on products
  • Learn the natural workflow of the COMSOL Desktop user interface through which all physical phenomena are set up
  • See how to efficiently create and modify your models, and optimize your designs, step-by-step
  • Experience the speed and ease of modeling in the COMSOL environment, shown through a hands-on multiphysics simulation example
  • Learn to convert an existing COMSOL model into an App using the COMSOL Application Builder

14:00 – 14:15

Coffee Break


Multiphase Flow Simulations


Find out about COMSOL’s capabilities for simulating multiphase flow in porous media. Hands-on exercise will be provided for:

  • Simulating groundwater and oil flow in porous media
  • Implementing multiphase formulations in COMSOL
  • Compare numerical results with analytical solutions


Coupled Flow and Reaction Simulations


Learn about COMSOL’s capabilities to solve coupled flow and geochemical processes. You will see:

  • The basics of reactive solute transport phenomena
  • iCP: the interface between COMSOL and PHREEQC (USGS geochemical simulator)

Real examples of complex reservoir scale simulations using COMSOL and iCP
