It’s been fun working with the next release. One of the great new features will be in the Particle Tracing Module and will allow particles to interact with each other, and not only with the macroscopic field they find themselves in. It also produces some pretty cool vids.

Wind turbines are an expensive investment and once they’re up, they’re up. An article from last year’s COMSOL News points to how modeling can also help in remedying problems, if it’s too late to have built the perfect design from the beginning. With wind turbines, noise is of course the problem.

I had previously blogged about Thermal Cloaking, which uses layers of aluminum and paper to create an anisotropic structure and cloak a desired object. This differs from the “traditional” type of cloaking, of light and electromagnetic waves, which make use of metamaterials or layered structures that impose a negative refractive index to make the cloaked object appear transparent.

A couple of days ago I blogged about the team at Lahey Clinic who are using COMSOL Multiphysics to model their neuromodulation therapy of patients. In their example, they place electrodes close to the spine and, through electric current, stimulate the area around these electrodes to relieve back pain. The reason why modeling is important for them is because it’s quite difficult to actually access these treatments to measure their effectiveness and possible detriments.

After I wrote about a group from EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland in a previous blog post, “Modeling Lightning Strikes is a Multiphysics Problem”, I checked to see if anyone from this group has presented at our conferences. It was great to find that Dr. Abdolhamid Shoory in fact has done so, with a paper titled: “Using COMSOL to Solve for Currents along a Thin-Wire Antenna Excited by a Lumped Source”.

As an avid reader of the physorg.com blog, I was pleasantly surprised to see a figure show up that could only have been made with COMSOL Multiphysics. Reading the article on thermal cloaking, I understood why.
