COMSOL, the developer of the COMSOL Multiphysics® simulation software, has introduced a new online resource that provides free and open access to modelling and simulation learning material across all areas of physics.
The Learning Centre offers a single-entry point for users of all skill levels, where courses, articles and videos present a clear path for learning how to use COMSOL Multiphysics® for modelling and simulation. It was designed with the user in mind: Categories and filters aid in finding resources and materials that match a topic of interest.
“The new Learning Centre makes it easier to find the right resources for each user,” says Amelia Halliday, product information engineering manager at COMSOL. “The broad scope of the content and the on-demand format helps users learn what they need, just when they need it.”
The Learning Centre currently includes ten multipart courses, from introductory to advanced concepts. The “Getting Started with COMSOL Multiphysics®” course covers the fundamentals of using the COMSOL® software. The exercise files and resources included in that course help users gradually build essential skills and feature both step-by-step and more open-ended examples. The course familiarises learners with the modelling workflow, efficient modelling and simulation techniques and how to build a simulation application based on a model.
The multipart courses cover topics such as:
- Defining Multiphysics Models
- Introduction to Electro-Thermal-Mechanical Modelling
- Using Swept Meshes for Model Geometries
- Modelling Partial Differential Equations in COMSOL Multiphysics®
All content in the Learning Centre, whether it be a multipart course or a standalone resource, offers a structured learning experience, in the form of articles, tutorial videos, model files, modelling exercises and step-by-step instructions.
“COMSOL’s mission is to provide easy-to-use software solutions to engineering problems and to help our users get the most out of our products,” says Andrew Griesmer, product information director at COMSOL. “The Learning Centre supports the second half of our mission. Our goal is to make it easy for users to acquire the modelling skills they need for their current and future simulation projects.”
