Using Degeneracy Breaking to Design a MEMS Biosensor

February 12, 2015

Researchers from Newcastle University in the U.K. used simulation to investigate the effects of material and geometric symmetry breaking in a degenerate mode sensor. Get the full story >>

Green Energy Management for Communication Systems

October 17, 2014

Look inside a team at Bell Labs, the research arm of Alcatel-Lucent committed to designing technologies for significantly improving energy management for next-generation telecom products.

Thermal Contact Resistance Simulation

August 28, 2014

When 2 materials are in direct contact, thermal conductivity is determined by their properties, but surface roughness introduces air-filled gaps between the materials. How do you model this?

Accurate Hematology Analysis Using Hydrofocusing

August 25, 2014

Hematology analysis is important for diagnosis and treatment. Researchers at HORIBA Medical used simulation to develop new methods for analyzing the accuracy of their hematology analysis devices.

What Is a Packed Bed Reactor?

August 15, 2014

Absorption, distillation, stripping, separation processes, catalytic reactions — the list goes on! All of these chemical processing applications require the use of a packed bed reactor.

Solving a Space Problem with Origami Principles

August 1, 2014

From spacecraft to solar panels, lack of space is a design problem. Read about how some researchers are using origami, the ancient art of Japanese paper folding, to remedy this issue.

Optimizing the Continuous Casting Process with Simulation

July 31, 2014

To optimize the steelmaking process of continuous casting, researchers at SMS Concast turned to simulation. One result? A steelmaking plant in Taiwan reduced yearly CO2 emissions by ~40,000 tons.

Just Published: Paper on Modeling Spinal Column Stimulation

July 25, 2014

To determine the effect of scar tissue on electrical current distribution during the treatment of chronic pain, researchers from Beth Israel Deaconess modeled the spinal cord stimulation process.
