Course Summary

Solving MultiPhysics problems provides a comprehensive and unified introductory MultiPhysics simulation training course. The instructors will draw on their experience solving a wide range of problems on a daily basis to teach you the practical aspects of MultiPhysics simulations. This training course will include how to set up, solve, submit/monitor analyses, and post process results to provide easy interpretation. The course mainly focuses on two types of MultiPhysics problems, i.e. fluid structure interaction (FSI) and thermal structure interaction (TSI). The participants will be experience the learning process through a combination of presentations, demonstrations, workshops, one-on-one instruction and individual problems.

In recent years, the development of modern modeling and simulation tools has enabled various factors to be evaluated simultaneously. One such approach is commonly known as the fluid structure interaction (FSI), in which the two distinct physics of fluid and solid domains are solved at the same time. There have been various methodologies to solve these FSI problems. Similarly, another important approach is known as thermal structure interaction (TSI) in which the physics of heat and structure are coupled together. TSI processes can be observed in various manufacturing processes such as welding and annealing. Keeping in view their industrial importance, numerical prediction of various parameters is effective and inexpensive. This course will focus on the implementation of these methods to real life problems with emphasis on problem solving using commercial codes.

This program is an intensive practical and valuable exposure to the most vital, up-to-date information and practical know-how to enable you to learn design and optimization process using MultiPhysics simulation approach.
