Happy Birthday, David Crosthwait
Fun fact: The original HVAC system for Rockefeller Center in New York City was designed by David Crosthwait, an engineer with 100+ patents.
Simulating MEMS Accelerometers and Gyroscopes Used in Inertial Measurement Units
Many autonomous vehicles rely on IMUs for navigation. Here, we show how the MEMS Module can help you model the gyroscopes and accelerometers used in IMUs.
Pasta alla Simulazione: Modeling an Extruder in COMSOL®
On an industrial scale, extruders mix and knead raw pasta dough. Avoid issues with looks, taste, and safety by modeling the extrusion process.
Happy Birthday, Ralph Fowler
During his career, Ralph Fowler supervised 64 doctoral students at Cambridge University, 3 of whom would become Nobel laureates.
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.
Visualizing the Emergence of Turing Patterns with Simulation
Turing patterns are often found in nature. The conditions behind the emergence of these patterns can be studied with chemical modeling.
Characterizing Piezoelectric Sensors for Nondestructive Testing
Piezoelectric sensors must be carefully designed and calibrated. Simulation can help make this process more efficient…
