Modeling Emissivity in Radiative Heat Transfer
In part 1 of a blog series on modeling radiative heat transfer, we discuss the concept of surface emissivity.
A Practical Sedimentation App for Toxicology Analysis
Sedimentation is widely used in toxicology, biochemistry, and biomedicine. You can study how gravity affects this physical phenomenon with simulation.
How to Compute the Projected Area of a CAD File in COMSOL®
Want to compute the projected area of a CAD file? We discuss three simple approaches for doing so here.
Happy Birthday, Ralph Fowler
During his career, Ralph Fowler supervised 64 doctoral students at Cambridge University, 3 of whom would become Nobel laureates.
2 Ways to Use a 3Dconnexion® SpaceMouse® with COMSOL®
Learn about using the 3Dconnexion® SpaceMouse® to select geometric entities and create model images.
Validating an Acoustic Ray Tracing Simulation of a Chamber Music Hall
The well-known Konzerthaus Berlin theater boasts 3 separate halls: The Grand Hall, the Small Hall, and the modern Werner Otto Hall. Here, we explore the acoustics of the Small Hall with simulation.
Happy Birthday, Joseph Petzval
In 1840, this Hungarian physicist introduced a lens design that could gather more than 20 times as much light as lenses used in earlier cameras.
How Long Does It Take an Engineer to Turn on a Light Bulb?
Misconception about electricity: Electrons carry the energy in an electrical circuit. Today, we investigate this theory with simulation.
