Programming Labview and Simulating with Comsol – Overview

  • Overview

Programming in LabView and Simulating in Comsol Multiphysics (Bio)Physicists. We offer a hands-on course on programming in Labview - e.g. experiment setups - and finite element simulations of partial differential equations with Comsol Multiphysics (aka Femlab).

Time and Location
Friday 10.15-11.45, Kleiner Physikhörsaal H020

Course is value with 3CP and aimed as a "Schlüsselqualifikation" (Bachelor or Master). The lectures is part of the the Biophysics Program of the Physics Master

-------- Please bring your own Notebook! ---------
If possible, install beforehand a most recent VirtualBox (Opensource)
on your operating system platform (Windows,Mac, Linux)

19.10. Introduction.
While installing the virtual box, overview over Labview and Comsol with a number of examples out of an experimental lab. Random number example

26.10. Configure Useful Preferences. Basic concepts in Labview: autoIndexing, For-Loops, Array Operators. Clusters.

23.11. Buttons, Loops and Moonlanding!

2.11. Random Image Example, Filenames, SubVIs, Saving VIs, Hierarchy Browser

9.11. Loading Image, Cursors, Extracting part of an image, Filenames, Select parts of an array.

16.11. Clusters, save ASCII file, load ASCII file. Controls. Fitting Introduction, 1D and 2D fit, Error calculation, ODE with Cash-Karp

23.11. Stripping down complex code, Complex ODE with Labview.

30.11. Labview-Hardware: Analog input, output, Digital input, output.

7.12. Introduction to Igor for plotting

14.12. Matlab I: fast introduction to the matrix programming language (Binding equilibrium Code)

21.12. Matlab II: Short intro to solve ODEs with Matlab (Chemical binding equilibrium)

11.1. Femlab, first steps: Wind channel, Stokes Drag of a sphere.
IMPORTANT: lecture will be moved to 25.1. at 12.00. I will not make it due to high snow (life in Lenggries). Sorry.

18.1. Mechanical Problems. Approach 2D and 3D. Solution over Time. Insulation of a Window

25.1. Colinear microfluidic mixer: coupling Navier Stokes and Diffusion (convection-diffusion-model)

1.2. Biophysics examples: embryo diffusion-reaction model and a thermal trap

8.2. Electrical examples: Capacitor, Resistance in 2D and 3D.
Further examples: Quantum Mechanics, Hydrogen Atom,

How to get the "Scheine" (if not done so already at the last lecture):
Pick them up at the Schellingstraße 4 / 4th floor , please check the Office Hours.
