Fluid Dynamics

Date & Location

City: Zürich
Date: December 4, 2014
Time: 9:00-17:00
Address: Technopark Zürich
Technoparkstr. 1
8005 Zürich
Room: Schulungsraum Florida, Haus Darwin (1. Stock)
Language: Material in English, personal assistance in English, auf Deutsch and en français.


The course introduces you to the simulation fluid flow with the COMSOL Modules `CFD Module´ und `Microfluidics ´. Starting from the fundamental balance laws of mass, momentum and energy in fluid dynamics you will learn a practical approach to efficeint modeling. The workflow includes geometry handling, physics, meshing, solving and postprocessing.

The instructor will select topics from this list as well as others as requested by attendees:

  • General balances of Fluid dynamics, boundary conditions
  • Turbulence modeling
  • Non-Newtonian flow
  • Polymer Flow and viscoelastic flow
  • Two-phase flow
  • Sedimentation, emulsions, and suspensions
  • Surface tension effects
  • Vacuum systems
  • Selected Multiphysics Couplings (Transport Processes)
  • Nonisothermal flow and free convection (see Heat Transfer Course)


Zoran Vidakovic
COMSOL Multiphysics GmbH, Zürich

Zoran Vidakovic received his BSc and MSc degrees in mechanical engineering from ETH Zürich, Switzerland. His studies and research projects focused on turbomachinery, heat transfer, fluid-
and thermodynamics and advanced energy technologies in general. In his master thesis at the Laboratory for Energy Conversion he numerically investigated the turbine performance and heat transfer of innovative cycle concepts for CO2 capture ready fossil power plants. Before joining COMSOL in April 2010 Mr. Vidakovic completed a six month industrial internship in the Aero-/ Thermodynamics R&D department of MAN Turbo AG Schweiz.

Dr. Eyal Spier
COMSOL Multiphysics GmbH, Zürich

Eyal Spier completed his PhD in Chemistry from ETH in 2013. His research centred on industrially applied oxidation chemistry, spectroscopic analytical methods, and quantum-chemical calculations using the density functional theory approach. He joined the team of COMSOL Zurich in the autumn of 2013.
