The Tuning Fork Application
In order to make it easy to get started with the Application Builder, we included a few example applications in the Application Libraries of COMSOL Multiphysics version 5.0. This blog post will give you an overview of the Tuning Fork application and the structural vibration model that it is based on.
Hydrocooling Analysis for Fresh Produce Safety
Worried about bacteria in your tomatoes? Research presented at the COMSOL Conference 2014 Boston shows where bacteria seeps through during hydrocooling — and how we can avoid ingesting it.
Meet the Winners of Intel’s Make it Wearable Challenge
In its inaugural year, Intel’s Make it Wearable contest received numerous entries from developers of wearable technology around the world. Here’s a closer look at the winners from this year’s competition.
Synthesizing Graphene with Chemical Vapor Deposition
With its growing use in numerous applications, the demand for graphene has steadily increased over the years. This heightened interest has prompted new research behind the methods for synthesizing graphene — one of which is chemical vapor deposition. See how one research team used modeling to analyze and enhance the CVD graphene growth mechanism.
COMSOL Multiphysics 5.0 Brings User Interface Improvements
Around this time last year, we introduced a new ribbon user interface to COMSOL Multiphysics. Now, with version 5.0, we are introducing many improvements that make COMSOL Multiphysics more intuitive to use. Updates include a change in color scheme, additional multiphysics interfaces, a materials tab, global materials, and Material Sweeps and Function Sweeps.
Coupling Structural Mechanics Interfaces
In addition to the general Solid Mechanics interface, the Structural Mechanics Module consists of specialized interfaces: Shell, Plate, and Membrane for the modeling of thin structures; and Beam and Truss for modeling slender structures. An engineering structure that has a mix of solid, thin, and slender components can be modeled by combining these physics interfaces with each other. Here, we will explore the options for coupling the structural mechanics interfaces by using examples from the Model Library.
Multiscale Reactors: Cleaning the Flows
Probably the most common reactor in the chemical industry is the packed bed reactor. This reactor is used in chemical synthesis and for effluent treatment and catalytic combustion. Oftentimes, heterogeneous catalysis requires packed beds. A common design is a cylindrical column filled with catalyst pellets. The pellets can be contained within supporting structures, like tubes or channels, or packed in a single compartment in the column. The latter is called dumped packing.
COMSOL Multiphysics® Version 5.0 Now Available
It’s here. We have now released the latest version of COMSOL Multiphysics® simulation software — version 5.0 — and it’s revolutionary. Why? You will now be able to turn your COMSOL Multiphysics models into apps and share them with your colleagues and customers. We are also releasing three new add-on products and numerous updates to existing products. Here’s a quick run-down of the release news.
