## Video Tutorial: Introduction to Modeling Structural Mechanics

##### Amelia Halliday | September 17, 2014

I have great news for anyone who is eager to learn the fundamentals of simulating structural mechanics in COMSOL Multiphysics. We have just published a completely revamped version of our video tutorial on the static bracket model. COMSOL Multiphysics version 4.4 and the Structural Mechanics Module are used to analyze the resultant forces, stresses, and deformations that occur on solid structures that are subjected to external loads.

### Video Tutorial: Capacitive Pressure Sensor

##### Amelia Halliday | June 16, 2014

If you are searching for a tutorial on how to model a miniaturized 3D electromechanics problem, then look no further. We have just published an updated version of our video tutorial on how to simulate a capacitive pressure sensor. COMSOL Multiphysics version 4.4 and the MEMS Module are used to simulate the electrostatic, structural, and thermal physics that occur.

### Intro Model: Studying the Signal Strength of RF Coils

##### Amelia Halliday | May 9, 2014

RF coil technology is ubiquitous throughout the world and serves as a major component of technologies, from medical equipment to wireless connectivity. It is important to ensure that the coils contained within these devices transmit information from a source to its destination properly.

### Exploring Below the Surface with a Poroelastic Analysis

##### Amelia Halliday | April 1, 2014

The Leaning Tower of Pisa is regarded as one of the most famous landmarks in the world, although geotechnical engineers probably view it more as a construction gaffe. To prevent such a leaning fate, it could be useful to run an analysis in order to predict possible subsidence due to poroelastic deformation.

### Solutions as Starting Point Values with LiveLink™ for MATLAB®

##### Amelia Halliday | March 10, 2014

There are several techniques out there for saving memory when solving a model. One involves splitting it into separate sections and solving these individually, instead of the entire model at once. If you want to map data from one COMSOL Multiphysics® solution to the next using MATLAB® scripting, you can do so by connecting the two software programs via LiveLink™ for MATLAB®.
