Advancing Additive Manufacturing with Sequential Simulations
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.
Happy Birthday, Joseph von Fraunhofer
Joseph von Fraunhofer is known for developing the spectroscope and discovering a set of spectral lines that are now known as Fraunhofer lines.
Designing Spiral Slot Antennas with Electromagnetics Simulation
Spiral slot antennas have nearly perfect circularly polarized radiation and wideband frequency response, and they can maintain a consistent radiation pattern and impedance over large bandwidths.
Analyzing the Deformation of a Biomedical Stent with Simulation
By studying deformation in an arterial stent, biomedical engineers can account for unwanted effects like dogboning and foreshortening long before the device is ever implanted.
Happy Birthday, Robert Maillart
Balancing structural engineering and artistic capabilities, civil engineer Robert Maillart designed some of the world’s most impressive bridges, including the Salginatobel and Schwandbach.
Optimizing Thermophotovoltaic Designs with Heat Transfer Simulation
Thermophotovoltaic (TPV) systems, known for their flexible fuel choice options, immovable parts, and potential for efficient power generation, can be optimized with heat transfer modeling.
Analyzing the Viscous and Thermal Damping of a MEMS Micromirror
Micromirrors are efficient and inexpensive. Here, we go over 2 types of analyses for a MEMS micromirror design, frequency-domain and transient, using the COMSOL® software.
Predicting Solute Transport in Groundwater Using Simulation
In order for groundwater to be useful for irrigation and drinking, we need to understand how its various solutes move through the water. The Subsurface Flow Module includes features for this.
