Simulating scientific phenomena is rapidly becoming an integral part of the
design and optimization process in many science and engineering fields.
Multiphysics simulation that can account for coupling of various models has
never been easier - or more powerful - than what COMSOL (formerly FEMLAB)
offers today.

This seminar covers an overview of COMSOL's capabilities, including specific
examples relevant to those conducting research and teaching in fields such

• Optics, RF and microwave modeling

• Acoustics modeling

• Electromagnetics modeling

• MEMS and Microfluidics modeling

• Electrical-mechanical-thermal coupling

• Flow, transport and chemical reaction modeling

• Unlimited Multiphysics coupling: simulating multiple phenomena and their
