Course Aim
At the end of the course the student should have basic knowledge about
- The finite element method
- How to formulate mathematical models describing physical and technical problems in a suitable form appropriate for the finite element method.
- How to use the simulation software Comsol Multiphysics to simulate physical and technical processes in which several disciplines in science and engineering are coupled.
-Orientation of how the software and simulation tool is used in actual research in university and industry.

The finite element method Introduction till Comsol Multiphysics Mathematical modeling of physical and technical processes.

The work is done in groups of 1-3 students.
