How Eddy Current Braking Technology Is Freeing Us from Friction
What moves must eventually stop. Unlike mechanical brakes, eddy current braking systems prevent damage when braking at high speeds. Hop on and learn more about eddy currents in this blog post.
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.
Keynote Video: EPFL Uses Simulation to Design a Hyperloop Pod
The EPFLoop team used multiphysics simulation to design the aeroshell, pressure vessel, and braking system of their hyperloop pod for the SpaceX 2018 competition. Get an inside look here.
Keynote Video: Enhancing STEM Education with Simulation
Ivana Milanovic uses simulation to teach undergraduate students in her science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) courses, as she explains in her COMSOL Conference 2018 presentation.
Keynote Video: Simulating the Drying of Cellular Foods
How about them (dried) apples? Empa uses multiscale modeling to analyze the dehydration of soft cellular food products, such as dried fruit, and scale their processes for mass production.
Keynote Video: Improving Synchrotron Light Sources with Applications
For synchrotron light sources, brighter is better: RadiaSoft LLC creates and deploys wave optics simulation applications to design improved vacuum chambers for a synchrotron upgrade project.
Keynote Video: Designing Lightning Protection Systems with Simulation
Can lightning strike the same place twice? Either way, it is challenging to model. When designing lightning protection systems, NTS Lightning Technologies turned to multiphysics simulation.
Keynote Video: Designing Improved Heart Pumps with Simulation
Abbott Laboratories designed “the most complex machine ever implanted into a human being” — an LVAD for heart failure patients — using multiphysics modeling. The result? Saved lives.
