Multiphysics Hub @ Empa

Empa's Multiphysics Hub aims to support computational modelers to boost excellence in modeling and simulation and to speed up the modeling workflow. We do this by facilitating software access at an institutional level and by fostering interaction between researchers.

To this end, we make multiphysics software (COMSOL, ANSYS, ABAQUS, ...) accessible for each employee or academic guest at Empa. We also provide best practice guidelines and coaching in multiphysics simulations. At the same time we organize events, such as technical workshops and Topical Days.

Upcoming events
  • Empa's Simulation and Sensing Day 2020 (December 2020, Zurich, Empa NEST)
  • Statistical modeling workshop (October 2020 - to be announced)
  • COMSOL Teaching Day IV (2021 - to be announced)
