Examining Vibration in a Lumped Model of the Human Body
Engineers working to reduce the effects of whole body vibration (WBV) in transportation methods can analyze their systems and designs using a lumped model of the human body.
How Do Chladni Plates Make It Possible to Visualize Sound?
Is it possible to see sound? Find out for yourself in this blog post on the acoustics behind Chladni plates.
Predicting the Stability of Rotor Systems with the COMSOL® Software
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
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
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
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
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
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”?
