IMG Workshop 2 - COMSOL by Camilo

Event date: 
Thu, 04/23/2020 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm

Today (4/23) Camilo Velez, a Ph.D. from Dr. Arnold's group and presently a post-doc at CMU is coming back to teach all of us three different COMSOL modules. The modules that will be covered through an example of Joule heating actuator are: ACDC, Heat Transfer and Structural Mechanics.

This is useful for COMSOL beginners and intermediate level people. Be ready with your questions.
