During a recent Heat Transfer Simulations webinar we demonstrated some good examples using “everyday life” type scenarios. Heat transfer occurs in many situations indeed: potatoes cooking in the microwave, hot coffee in a cup, and on the beach, with solar radiation. And most of us have at some point boiled water to make pasta for dinner. Heat transfer is at work then too.

It has always been the flexibility of COMSOL Multiphysics that attracted people from the fuel cell and battery industries. The other software back in the day did not adequately support the ability to model the electrochemical equations that were required to properly describe the behavior of their appliances. As we noticed that more and more of these vendors were interested in COMSOL Multiphysics, this led to a great increase in COMSOL’s knowledge and ability to model these applications. For example, […]

As an engineer researching and designing new products you really need to consider all aspects of the environment it is going to work within. Most of the time it won’t be enough to examine a single situation the product may encounter, because in nature there is always a combination of physical effects taking place — multiphysics.

Summer months tend to be a quiet period for corporate activities, but not for us. For one, our webinars are seeing a large attendance even during these months. One of our highest attended free webinars recently was one that we held with SAE International on July 31st about Multiphysics Simulation in Vehicle Applications.

Driving to work today I was filled with inspiration due to a radio report of the inspiring moment of the landing of the Curiosity on Mars. The reporter had concentrated on the leader of the rover’s entry, descent and landing engineering team, Adam Steltzner, and the star of the moment. The quote that hit me while I waited at the traffic light was “The thing that engineering and physics gave me was, there’s a right answer.” The guy had said […]

I have previously blogged about 3D printing and how it would be great if you could go from model to product in one step. Now it seems as though the Stereolithography (STL) file format is reaching its limits for being useful as a standard for this type of application. The printers themselves, and what they are capable of, are outstripping the abilities of the file formats to support their new capabilities. Moves are being made to develop a better file […]

As promised, I’m back to introduce to you the second tutorial video in the new postprocessing blog series. This video covers the basics of creating plots, including some useful ways you can tweak and customize your plots. For example, have you ever wanted to improve the resolution of a plot, add or modify titles and axis labels, standardize the color bars over multiple graphs in one plot group, modify a deformation plot’s scaling, or view multiple plots in the COMSOL […]

Did you hear that the University of Michigan’s team won the American Solar Challenge a couple of weeks ago? Back in January of this year, I blogged about how the University of Michigan team refined their solar car design and now it’s great to see them come in first in the Solar Challenge. They finished the eight-day trip ten hours ahead of the runner-up, Iowa State. This win resonates with us at COMSOL as well actually, because they used COMSOL […]

One of our Certified Consultants, Dr. Roger Pryor, wrote a book about “Multiphysics Modeling using COMSOL 4” in February this year. The book covers multiphysics problems ranging from relatively easy to relatively difficult, from 1D to 3D. Now, Dr. Pryor’s book on COMSOL version 4 is used in his brand new COMSOL training series in Troy, MI.
