Numerical simulations allow us to directly visualize physical processes occurring within products. This provides an insight into the interaction of otherwise invisible phenomena, such as the movement of heat or mechanical stress.
During the early stages of product design, you will tend to have significant freedom within a given design envelope. With numerical simulation tools you can efficiently and systematically investigate this design envelope to create an optimized product. This could be achieved by changing the dimensions, shape, or form of the design, to minimize material use for example; or by considering different, cheaper materials, or even by simulating and optimizing the manufacturing process to minimize defects in the end product.
DURING THIS SESSION DELEGATES WILL LEARN:
- How to optimize engineering designs using Optimization module within the COMSOL Multiphysics® software
- How simulation workflow can be generalized to many branches of physics and engineering
- How the optimized geometry can be exported for further analysis and 3D printing
