COMSOL, maker of the COMSOL Multiphysics simulation software, is continuing its global virtual event series with COMSOL Day: Acoustics, to be held in three different time zones, with each event featuring a one-day program focusing on acoustics simulation. Sessions will be hosted online on April 28, May 5, and May 19 by organizers in the USA, Europe, and China, respectively.
The events will bring together engineers and scientists looking to advance simulation-driven product development within acoustics and vibrations — two areas that are growing rapidly thanks to a surge in audio applications. The program will feature keynote speakers from research organizations and the audio and automotive industries. Presentations by COMSOL speakers will cover trends in acoustics simulation, such as how companies can benefit from creating their own simulation apps and using the Model Manager in COMSOL Multiphysics, along with application-specific demonstrations and interactive Q&A sessions.
The increasing demand for high-quality audio in everything from phones to concert halls is putting pressure on device manufacturers to develop and optimize acoustics performance for a great variety of products and applications. Virtually every product or device generating sound or vibrations depends on several coupled physics phenomena to operate: typically, electrical, mechanical, fluid flow, and acoustics phenomena. To accurately predict and optimize the real-world performance of such products with simulation, the underlying model needs to take into account coupled physics phenomena: that is, multiphysics.
COMSOL Day: Acoustics provides an opportunity to see how acoustics industry leaders are addressing development and optimization challenges by turning to multiphysics simulation.

“COMSOL Day: Acoustics offers a great opportunity for anyone involved in acoustics product design to see how the industry is benefiting from the use of multiphysics simulation to optimize customer experience, develop new technologies, and create better products,” said Thure Ralfs, managing director of COMSOL A/S and event host. ”Attendees will also see in practice what it takes to build a model from start to finish, within a wide range of application areas.”
The COMSOL Day: Acoustics event dates and start times are as follows:
- April 28 at 11 a.m. EDT (USA)
- May 5 at 9 a.m. CEST (Denmark)
- May 19 at 1 p.m. HKT (China)
These events are open to all, and attendance is free of charge. View COMSOL Day program details. Participation from any region at any of the events is welcomed. Please note that the sessions hosted by the COMSOL offices in the USA and Denmark will be conducted in English, while the event hosted by the office in China will be in Chinese.
