Multiphysics Simulations Enable Development of Fast, Cheap MEMS-Based Bacteria Detector

Professor Mark Reed and his team at Yale University are using COMSOL Multiphysics to develop a MEMS-based solution for detecting bacteria in blood. Called the aScreen, it will provide analyses speedily, accurately, and cost-effectively. Such a device would greatly help the food industry in improving meat quality and reducing the risk for infections. Current methods take too long for ...

Simulation Turns Up the Heat and Energy Efficiency at Whirlpool Corporation

Engineers working on a joint research project between Whirlpool Corporation and the European initiative GREENKITCHEN project are using simulation to improve the energy efficiency of domestic ovens. Since only ten to twelve percent of the total energy expended by an oven is actually used to heat the food, the researchers had plenty to investigate. Using COMSOL Multiphysics® software and the
