Course Outline

  • Current state of simulations in the medical device industry
  • Overview of the physics areas common to medical device simulation:
    • Structural mechanics, fluid flow, acoustics, electromagnetics, heat transfer, species transport, and particle tracing
  • Efficient use of COMSOL Multiphysics:
    • Nonlinearity, multiphysics coupling, convergence, solution monitoring
  • Challenges relevant in medical device modeling:
    • Biological material modeling--large deformation, viscoplasticity, strain-rate dependence
    • Blood modeling--single phase vs. multiphase, Newtonian vs. non-Newtonian
    • Damage modeling
    • Electromagnetic tissue heating
    • Piezoelectric devices
  • Medical device examples:
    • Includes RF tissue ablation and artificial lung compliant chamber
  • Assistance on specific models from course registrants


This course is intended for people with some experience in using COMSOL Multiphysics, and basic knowledge of finite element analysis.

Attendees must bring their own laptop computer.  A 14-day free trial version of COMSOL Multiphysics will be made available for installation prior to the start of class.
