Multiphysics Modelling of Sensors and Actuators
This webinar will focus on the application of multiphysics modelling for the design and development of sensors and actuators. It will explore how to model and develop a wide range of devices using COMSOL Multiphysics, a solution designed for engineers to help realise their designs quickly and effectively, and reduce product lead-times and costs. As such it will appeal to technical and project managers as well as engineers, scientists and researchers working in this field.
Sensors and actuators are widely developed for use in many industrial applications, ranging from consumer products and vehicles to medical and drug delivery devices. Simulating these devices requires a multiphysics approach: most sensors and actuators utilize several coupled physical effects. For this reason, designers are using multiphysics-capable software to model thermal, electrical, structural, piezoelectric and microfluidic behaviour for most sensor applications.
