The overarching reason why you should attend one of our multiphysics workshops is of course that you get to see COMSOL Multiphysics in action. Thinking that sounded great, albeit a bit lofty, I asked my colleague Lauren Sansone who oversees our corporate events, to spell it out more concretely. Her three reasons why you should attend are as follows: You will receive a 2-week trial of COMSOL Multiphysics software You get to set up and build your own model You […]

One of my favorite sitcoms is “The Big Bang Theory”, thanks to its focus on physics. From time to time they run funny experiments that can be easily arranged at home, causing me to wonder if I know the physics that are at work. One of my favorite episodes is when they fill the cone of a speaker with a suspension of starch in water. Instead of spattering around, the suspension starts to dance because it behaves more like a […]

On Friday I wrote about designing safer lithium-ion batteries, and showed you a few resources for helping people do just that. Now I’d like to show you a lithium-ion battery model and briefly run through how it can be created in COMSOL Multiphysics in three sequential studies.

Unless you live under a rock, you’ll have heard lithium-ion batteries mentioned a lot lately. Last week in Boston, a lithium-ion battery caught fire in the new Boeing 787 Dreamliner, forcing them to ground all Dreamliner planes until further notice. This type of battery makes it possible to pack lots of power into a small package. What can be done to make it operate safely?

It’s that time of year again for all the foodies out there; on January 29th the 2013 Bocuse d’Or will be in full swing with 24 chefs each representing their country, vying for the Gold Medal in the Olympic Games of the culinary world. In this biennial event, the chefs will have to combine classical and innovative cooking techniques to come out on top. At the last Bocuse d’Or in 2011, Gunnar Hvarnes propelled past the competition with the aid […]

On January 10th, hundreds of people tuned in to hear COMSOL and Continuum Blue discuss Structural Mechanics simulations in certain industry applications. As promised in my previous blog post on multiphysics modeling webinars happening in 2013, here is a round-up of the event — including a video excerpt detailing three structural analysis examples presented by Continuum Blue.

How do you avoid product failure down the line? By ensuring you manufacture accurate parts and assemble them correctly, of course. Manufacturing success stems from good design ideas. “Good ideas” are not conjured up at random; good ideas are those that are based on real-world physical principles. This video will show you how your company can infuse sound concepts into the early product development stages by modeling mechanical applications in COMSOL Multiphysics.

We have written several blog posts on postprocessing already, but none detailing postprocessing for CFD. Postprocessing has always been an important part of my teachings, as you learn how to use COMSOL Multiphysics while also gaining insight into the physics at hand. I would like to share with you part of the classwork I proposed when teaching a CFD training course not long ago.

Last week, we gave you one opportunity to meet your New Year’s resolutions for becoming more productive. While in-person Training Courses are ideal for a rich learning experience, we do realize that some of you may not be able to justify the travel and expenses associated with it just yet. If you want to get to know what modeling multiphysics with COMSOL is all about without leaving your desk, we have another option for you: live webinars. We already have […]

Engineers and scientists are known to step up to the challenges posed by nature. After developing an understanding of how the current object or process works, the next step often includes figuring out how to manipulate the situation to improve said object or process. One such example is cloaking; controlling light and sound waves to render something invisible. Phys.org recently ran a story on progressive research on controlling magnetic fields via cloaking to harvest and transfer energy using a magnetic […]
