Predicting the Stability of Rotor Systems with the COMSOL® Software

July 20, 2018

Instability in a rotor system can lead to catastrophic failure. Fortunately, engineers can predict the stability of rotor systems by performing stability analyses with the Rotordynamics Module.

Evaluating a Turbocharger Design with Rotordynamics Analysis

July 11, 2018

Like a “turbocharged” cup of coffee, an actual turbocharger also increases speed, but in the operation of a combustion engine, not how fast your morning cup wakes you up.

How to Provide Structural Stability in Thermal Expansion Simulations

June 28, 2018

Say you want to compute thermal expansion and stresses in an object, but you don’t know what constraints you need. That’s where the Rigid Motion Suppression feature comes in.

The Elephants of Materials Science: SMAs Never Forget Their Shape

May 11, 2018

Learn about the history and use cases of shape memory alloys such as nitinol. You can also model the phase transformation of these unique materials in COMSOL Multiphysics®.

How to Model a Cam-Follower Mechanism

April 18, 2018

Watch a series of animations that show the different types of cam-follower mechanisms before learning how to model them in COMSOL Multiphysics®.

Finding Answers to the Tuning Fork Mystery with Simulation

April 13, 2018

If you strike a tuning fork and hold it against a tabletop, the peak frequency of the emitted sound doubles. Is there a physical explanation for this “tuning fork mystery”?

Advancing Additive Manufacturing with Sequential Simulations

March 7, 2018

In some ways, additive manufacturing is like sewing or weaving. We talk to a professor of additive manufacturing about how sequential simulations can be used to analyze and optimize the process.

Analyzing Triaxial Testing Methods for Geomechanics

March 5, 2018

Triaxial testing of soil is important when determining the structural stability of a tunnel, dam, or building. Geomechanics simulation can help ensure that triaxial testing methods are up to par.
