Designing Heating Circuits with Multiphysics Simulation
The electronic message boards you see on the highway contain heating circuits. Their design is a truly multiphysics problem involving heat transfer, structural mechanics, and electromagnetics.
Keynote Video: Optimizing Cable Systems via Simulation
The length of cable for a mode of transportation depends on the amount of passengers, so a car uses ~5 km of cable and a cruise ship uses ~5000 km. Learn more about cable system design here.
Keynote Video: Enhancing STEM Education with Simulation
Ivana Milanovic uses simulation to teach undergraduate students in her science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) courses, as she explains in her COMSOL Conference 2018 presentation.
Optimizing Planar Coils for PCBs with Electromagnetics Simulation
Planar coils are found in the PCBs of blood pressure sensors, RFID tags, induction cooktops, and more. Use layered shell technology to design optimized planar PCB coils, no matter the use case.
Maintaining Cold Temperatures in an Isothermal Box with Simulation
Heat transfer modeling is more accurate when you can input historical climate data from ASHRAE, such as in this example of an isothermal box designed to transport perishable items and medicine.
Keynote Video: Improving Synchrotron Light Sources with Applications
For synchrotron light sources, brighter is better: RadiaSoft LLC creates and deploys wave optics simulation applications to design improved vacuum chambers for a synchrotron upgrade project.
Simulating Multiphase Flow in Porous Media with a Low Permeable Lens
Modeling phase transport helps you study the multiphase flow through a porous medium (such as groundwater through soil).
