Short Abstract:

The course aims at introducing the students to the physics and multi-physics based modelling, focusing on applications in the field of information engineering, in particular biomedical ones. The first part of the course will provide basic abilities of using COMSOL Multi-physics software for modelling physical phenomena, in particular transport and reaction of chemical species, heat transfer and solid mechanics. Then, the second part of the course will be devoted to hands-on using the software, identifying exercises close to the activities of the students during their PhD experience.

Course Contents in brief:

  • Brief introduction to Physics and Multi-Physics modelling and to the COMSOL platform
  • Definition of easy and complex geometries and meshing
  • Parametric sweep solutions
  • “Transport and reaction of chemical species”, “heat transfer” and “solid mechanics” modules
  • Data handling: post-processing and plotting
  • Examples and applications
