Happy Birthday, Blaise Pascal

June 19, 2018

Blaise Pascal was a mathematician who wanted to make mathematical calculations easier. His work in projective geometry led to what is now known as Pascal’s theorem.

Analyzing Magnetotellurics with Electromagnetics Simulation

May 17, 2018

Magnetotellurics (MT) is a geophysical method for mapping the magma flow of volcanos. Using electromagnetics simulation, engineers are able to study and improve this technique.

Happy Birthday, Inge Lehmann

May 13, 2018

Inge Lehmann was a Danish geophysicist and seismologist who used seismic waves generated by earthquakes to answer the age-old question: What’s really at the center of the earth?

Happy Birthday, Jean-Charles de Borda

May 4, 2018

Jean-Charles de Borda traveled the seas in the French military before making strides in the fields of fluid mechanics, geodesy, navigation, and more.

Teaching Students About Acoustics Phenomena with Apps

April 27, 2018

Acoustics concepts and their underlying theories can be difficult for engineering students to visualize. For one university, simulation applications proved to be an effective teaching tool.

Analyzing a Supersonic Ejector with CFD Simulation

April 16, 2018

From food refrigeration in a local market to debris removal in the outer corners of space, ejectors have a wide range of uses. You can use the CFD Module to analyze a supersonic ejector design.

Simulating an SMA Connector on a Grounded Coplanar Waveguide

April 10, 2018

SMA connectors are used in cellphone antennas and PCB testing. To optimize their performance for a specific use, electrical engineers can evaluate their designs with simulation.

Advancing Additive Manufacturing with Sequential Simulations

March 7, 2018

In some ways, additive manufacturing is like sewing or weaving. We talk to a professor of additive manufacturing about how sequential simulations can be used to analyze and optimize the process.
