Fractals, Noise, and State Variables

January 5, 2021

Ever notice how the leaves of a fern seem to show a self-repeating pattern? Fractals are objects that exhibit some form of self-similarity at different scales. Learn how to model them here.

Keynote Video: Rapid Prototyping for Sonar Systems

December 15, 2020

Engineers at Northrop Grumman follow a 4-part rapid prototyping design phase: Design, manufacturing a prototype, testing and design verification, and manufacturing of the final design.

Accelerating Model Convergence with Symbolic Differentiation

October 29, 2020

Whenever you set up and solve a nonlinear problem in COMSOL Multiphysics, a symbolic differentiation engine is automatically used to ensure high robustness and accelerate model convergence.

Implementing a Damage Evolution Law for a Hyperelastic Material

September 8, 2020

By implementing a physically motivated damage evolution law for a hyperelastic material, you can incorporate material softening, creep, and stabilization of hysteresis curves during cycling.

Estimating Hyperelastic Material Parameters via a Lap Joint Shear Test

September 3, 2020

For rubber, polymers, and biological tissue, the relationship between stress and strain is nonlinear, even at small loads. The lap joint shear test can be used to determine material properties.

How to Use State Variables in COMSOL Multiphysics®

May 20, 2020

As of COMSOL Multiphysics® version 5.5, you can use state variables to track the state of your model; affect other fields, such as material properties; and even implement hysteresis.

How to Perform a Sensitivity Analysis in COMSOL Multiphysics®

February 6, 2020

How do the parameters of your design affect its performance? Understanding this relationship is a valuable part of the design process. By performing a sensitivity analysis, you can do just that.

Defeating Giant Movie Monsters Using Mathematical Modeling

August 5, 2019

The predator-prey equation can predict how we’d fare in a monster invasion, as well as real-world biology and ecology scenarios like shark overpopulation and tumor movement.
