Apr 22 – 23, 2021
Europe/Zurich timezone

The workshop is an opportunity to learn:

  • About GetDP, Gmsh, ONELAB and post-processing options
  • How to develop simple models and to see examples of advanced models
  • About challenges for FE code and some methods to improve outcomes
  • How the future development of GetDP is going to shape

Specific examples and approaches will be covered:

  • Superconductivity (critical state model and various formulations)
  • Magnet design and optimisation, with ferromagnetic elements
  • Quench and thermal transient problems
  • How to couple various physics models

Key features of GetDP:

  • Free and Open-Source FEM solver capable of 1D, 2D and 3D simulations
  • Single or Multiphysics with various couplings
  • Flexibility to define application specific physics
  • Modern scripting langue allowing repeatable analysis
  • Graphical user interface provided via Gmsh, through ONELAB interface

Participants experience and preparation:

  • Basic knowledge of Finite Element Methods, and concepts of meshing, solving and post-processing
  • Basic knowledge of superconductivity and electromagnet design
  • (Optional) ONELAB bundle downloaded (https://onelab.info/). In the bundle, the model: models/Superconductors/helix.pro will be introduced during the workshop
