Estimating Parameters for a Li-Ion Battery via a Lumped Model
When performing an electrochemical analysis on a battery, an engineer might not have all of the information from the manufacturer. The solution? Parameter estimation via a lumped model…
Happy Birthday, James Clerk Maxwell
Maxwell’s equations, which describe how electric and magnetic fields behave and interact, revolutionized electromagnetics. Did you know that James Clerk Maxwell also took the first color photo?
Understanding the Drug Reaction Kinetics of Nerve Guides via Modeling
Ever had a pinched nerve? Nerve guides repair this type of damaged nerve cell tissue. To design safe and reliable nerve guides, we can use simulation to understand their drug reaction kinetics.
Evaluating the Impact of Bearing Misalignment on Rotor Vibration
Bearings are found in devices ranging from MEMS and turbines to electric motors and even ships. How we account for a bearing’s misalignment (and the resulting rotor vibration) depends on its use.
Taking a Look at Electrochemical Treatment for Tumors via Modeling
EChT offers many benefits for the treatment and removal of cancerous tumors, so why isn’t it a widely accepted method yet? First, we need a better understanding of tumor destruction mechanisms.
Evaluating the Electrode Utilization of a Lithium-Ion Battery Pouch Cell
Large-format batteries are found in energy storage systems; electric, hybrid, and plug-in cars; unmanned vehicles; light-rail trains; and more. We discuss modeling a component of these batteries.
Performing a Multiphysics Analysis of a Thermal Microactuator
To design an optimized thermal microactuator for use in a specific device, you need to account for tightly coupled electrical, thermal, and structural phenomena in your analysis.
Efficiently Analyze Charge Exchange Cell Designs Using Applications
Due to their neutral ion beam, charge exchange cells are used in processes ranging from ion implantation and semiconductor fabrication to synchrotron devices and medical research.
