Paper Mechanics and the Benefits of Modeling Paperboard Formation
Get a quick introduction to paper mechanics before guest blogger Eric Linvill discusses modeling a L&W bending resistance test piece for cost-benefit analyses in paperboard production.
How to Perform Structural Analyses Using Shock Response Spectra
Mechanical engineers: Learn how to find shock response spectra, use combination methods for eigenmodes, perform missing mass correction, and display your results with the COMSOL® software.
Improving Fire Protection for Structures via Building Physics Simulation
“I didn’t know there was a fire drill scheduled for today,” you say to a colleague. “There isn’t,” they respond. Then you smell smoke. Continue the story in this blog post on building physics.
Keynote Video: Optimizing Cable Systems via Simulation
The length of cable for a mode of transportation depends on the amount of passengers, so a car uses ~5 km of cable and a cruise ship uses ~5000 km. Learn more about cable system design here.
Happy Birthday, Berta Karlik
Berta Karlik helped discover the naturally occurring version of element 85, astatine. She was also the first woman to teach at the University of Vienna.
