Knowing the exact behavior of a system or even a component of a system under actual “real-life” type of loads is an extremely difficult task. To help this task an engineer may use modeling tools to simulate the behavior of complex systems and physics. The modeling task and application of software tools are becoming more and more common in modern engineering practices. Modeling results can help optimization and refinement of a design before the physical prototype is built and minimizes the time duration of design process. In addition, application of modeling could help minimizing the final cost of a prototype or a product. In this seminar participants will learn about multiphysics modeling principles and applications through hands-on use of COMSOL® software and some of its modules.


Major subjects may include following:
  • Introduction to mathematical modeling.
  • Introduction to multiphysics modeling and principles for engineers.
  • Introduction to COMSOL Multiphysics® and modules.
  • Solutions for typical engineering problems using COMSOL.
  • Modeling techniques and solutions for ad-hoc engineering problems.
  • Provide exercise time and instructions for students to build some models.
  • Hands-on session for building multiphysics models
 
Participants should bring along their own computers/Laptop. Software license (limited time) will be provided. A textbook on this topic, written by the Instructor will be included with registration. Handouts and a reference list will be provided to support class work and further readings.
 
 
Instructor: 
Dr. Mehrzad Tabatabaian is a Faculty Member- Instructor and Program Head- at the Mechanical Engineering Department, School of Energy at BCIT with several years of teaching experience. In addition to teaching courses in the fields of thermodynamics, energy systems management and modeling he also does research on renewable energy systems and modeling. Dr. Tabatabaian is also School of Energy  Research Committee Chair and actively involved in the energy-initiative activities. He has published several papers in various scientific journals and conferences, and also holds several patents in the energy field. Dr. Tabatabaian’s recent focus is on wind and solar power which has resulted in registered and pending patents.
Recently, Mehrzad volunteered to help establishing a new division at APEGBC, Division for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (DEERE). Mehrzad offers several PD seminars for the APEGBC members on the subjects of wind power, solar power, renewable energy, and Finite-Element modeling method. Mehrzad Tabatabaian got his BEng from  Sharif University of Technology , graduated from McGill University (MEng and PhD). He has been an active academic, professor, and engineer in leading alternative energy, oil, and gas industries. Mehrzad has also a Leadership Certificate from the University of Alberta, and holds an APEGBC P.Eng license, and is active member of ASME and ASEE.
