Happy Birthday, Blaise Pascal
Blaise Pascal was a mathematician who wanted to make mathematical calculations easier. His work in projective geometry led to what is now known as Pascal’s theorem.
Analyzing Magnetotellurics with Electromagnetics Simulation
Magnetotellurics (MT) is a geophysical method for mapping the magma flow of volcanos. Using electromagnetics simulation, engineers are able to study and improve this technique.
Happy Birthday, Inge Lehmann
Inge Lehmann was a Danish geophysicist and seismologist who used seismic waves generated by earthquakes to answer the age-old question: What’s really at the center of the earth?
Happy Birthday, Jean-Charles de Borda
Jean-Charles de Borda traveled the seas in the French military before making strides in the fields of fluid mechanics, geodesy, navigation, and more.
Teaching Students About Acoustics Phenomena with Apps
Acoustics concepts and their underlying theories can be difficult for engineering students to visualize. For one university, simulation applications proved to be an effective teaching tool.
Modeling Fluid-Structure Interaction in a Heart Valve
The average human heart beats 100,000 times per day, but what if the person has cardiac issues? Modeling fluid-structure interaction in a heart valve can help researchers develop new treatments.
Analyzing a Supersonic Ejector with CFD Simulation
From food refrigeration in a local market to debris removal in the outer corners of space, ejectors have a wide range of uses. You can use the CFD Module to analyze a supersonic ejector design.
Simulating an SMA Connector on a Grounded Coplanar Waveguide
SMA connectors are used in cellphone antennas and PCB testing. To optimize their performance for a specific use, electrical engineers can evaluate their designs with simulation.
