Opening of inter-faculty laboratory of physical processes’ computer simulation in electronics

2018.09.19 Відкриття Міжфакультетської лабораторії комп’ютерного моделювання фізичних процесів в електроніці

Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute, Department of General Physics and Solid State Physics and Faculty of Physics and Mathematics opened an Interfaculty educational and scientific laboratory of computer simulation of physical processes in electronics on September 19.

The staff of the two departments – physics, mathematics and electronics – staffed a laboratory and trained in it for students' work. The direct participation in the arrangement of the laboratory was taken by the teachers of the Department of General Physics and Solid State Physics of the FMF, headed by its head Vitaliy Kotovskyi, and the Chair of Electronic Devices and Devices of FEL under the direction of its head Leonid Pysarenko.

Participation in the opening of the laboratory was taken by the rector of Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute, academician of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine Michael Zgurovskyi, first vice-rector of the Academy of Sciences of Ukraine Yuriy Yakymenko, dean of the Faculty of Electronics Valery Zhykov, dean of the Faculty of Physics and Mathematics Volodymyr Vanin, Vitaliy Kotovskyi, Leonid Pysarenko and others.

The lab is equipped with computers and a powerful server with the modern software package for multisystem simulation COMSOL Multiphysics® and COMSOL Server ™ installed on them. This is an integrated environment for digital simulation based on the finite element method developed at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. The package allows you to create multiphysical models, in which in one model you can associate several physical phenomena with the addition of own equations and create custom applications. To do this, there are several main modules in the environment focused on separate sections of physics and chemistry with the relevant units: electrodynamics (AC/DC, radio frequency, wave optics, geometric optics, etc.), mechanics and acoustics (structural mechanics, nonlinear structural materials, geomechanics, material exhaustion, dynamics of multi-system systems, etc.), hydrodynamics and heat transfer (computational hydrodynamics, mixer, flows in porous media, microhydrodynamics, etc.), chemical reactions (accumulator and fuel elements, electrodeposition, corrosion, electrochemistry) and multi-modules (optimization, library materials, trace particles) and the integration of various engineering software packages, and complex programming languages.

According to the head of the new laboratory, Associate Professor Leonid Tsybulskyi, the students, with the help of the software package COMSOL Multiphysics®, will be able to learn in the laboratory how to model constructions, devices and processes in almost all fields of engineering, manufacturing and scientific research. That is why the laboratory from the beginning of its activity will be interfacial, because the department of general physics and solid state physics of FMF conducts classes for students of twelve faculties. Moreover, as Vitaliy Kotovskyi said during his opening, its appearance may become an instrument for engaging senior pupils in physics (through the Small Academy of Sciences) and the first step in equipping the same laboratories of other faculties and institutes of the Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute.
During the presentation of the laboratory there was an interesting conversation not only about its creation, but also about the opening of a new exemplary physical laboratory with modern equipment that would become worthy at the department of general physics (which, incidentally, as the university, this year turned out to be 120 years old!) the continuation of the traditions laid down by the founders of the Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic University. “If you have such an alliance and with the involvement of our other specialists, you will take on this problem, this will be extremely important not only for our university” said Michael Zgurovskyi - And if we work in this direction with European partners, we can achieve a lot”.
