Geometry Optimization with COMSOL Multiphysics®

Date: Wednesday 25 May 2016, 2pm BST.


For product designers, research scientists and engineers, a computational model that predicts the behaviour of a design is only the first step in the modelling process. Once a model has been solved the next step is to optimize the design. This might involve minimising the amount of material needed to safely support a structure, or maximising the throughput of a chemical in a chemical reactor. This optimization process can be automated using the Optimization Module in COMSOL Multiphysics®. You can pick one or more objective functions to be minimised, identify which modelling inputs can be varied to achieve the optimal design, and specify a set of constraints that a model must satisfy. In this webinar we will show you how to use the geometry optimization capabilities of COMSOL Multiphysics® version 5.2 to find the best designs quickly and easily. The presentation will feature a live modelling demo and finish with a Q&A session.
