8 Uses of COMSOL Multiphysics® in the Biomedical Industry
Read about 8 real-world examples of how engineers and researchers in the biomedical industry are using simulation to advance their innovative designs.
3 Examples of Optimizing Loudspeaker Components
Whether in a home theater system, gym, or massive concert venue, loudspeakers need to perform optimally. 1 way to do so is by performing a shape or topology optimization study of its components.
Studying a 500-Million-Year-Old Dinner Party with CFD Simulation
From zebras to elephants to lions, Namibia is home to a variety of wildlife. However, this research team was on the lookout for the fossils of a 500-million-year-old organism.
New Method for Performing Topology Optimization of FSI Problems
Many topology optimization methods are only available for FSI problems within a purely academic scope. Enter the TOBS-GT algorithm for fluid-structure design…
Analyzing Tsunami Waves with an Established Benchmark Model
The 1993 Hokkaidō earthquake in Japan caused tsunami waves that reached massive runup heights — one recorded wave in Monai Valley even reached as high as 32 m (~104 ft)!
Why Do Pigeons Have Iridescent Feathers?
If you look at a pigeon a certain way, the feathers around their necks shine in bright hues of emerald and amethyst. As it turns out, a prehistoric animal exhibited a similar trait…
Happy Birthday, Joseph Fourier
From heat conduction and the Fourier series to the greenhouse effect and Fourier transform, Joseph Fourier’s research has many implications in the modern world.
5 W’s for 200 Years of Electromagnetism
Fun fact: Hans Christian Ørsted originally studied pharmacology and philosophy before he went on to discover the connection between electricity and magnetism.
