Digital Twins and Model-Based Battery Design

February 20, 2019

By combining high-fidelity multiphysics models with lightweight models and measured data, engineers can create digital twins to understand, predict, optimize, and control real-world systems.

Digital Twins: Not Just Hype

February 19, 2019

The term “digital twin” has been called everything from just hype to a revolutionary concept. We use a jet engine example to explain the concept of digital twins and how simulation fits in.

FEM vs. FVM

November 29, 2018

Finite element methods, finite volume methods, or a hybrid approach: Which is the best choice for CFD? It depends on the fluid flow problem you’re trying to solve.

Does It Matter Which Ball the FIFA World Cup™ Teams Practiced With?

June 6, 2018

In an attempt to determine what type of soccer ball is best to prepare for the FIFA World Cup™, we set up a backyard experiment involving a leaf blower, level, and a few soccer balls.

Terminal Velocity, Drag Coefficients, and FIFA World Cup™ Predictions

June 1, 2018

Is it possible to predict the winners of the FIFA World Cup™? We forgo consulting a psychic and instead analyze the terminal velocity and drag coefficients of different balls with CFD simulation.

Modeling Free Surfaces in COMSOL Multiphysics® with Moving Mesh

May 31, 2018

You can model free liquid surfaces that do not undergo topology changes using moving mesh functionality in the COMSOL® software. Here’s a thorough guide on how to do so.

Two Methods for Modeling Free Surfaces in COMSOL Multiphysics®

May 15, 2018

We take you through 2 methods for modeling free surfaces in the COMSOL® software: the level set and phase field methods. Learn how to use each method and their benefits.

Using the Algebraic Multigrid (AMG) Method for Large CFD Simulations

March 26, 2018

There’s an ideal method for solving large CFD simulations that involve complex geometries. It’s called the algebraic multigrid (AMG) method, and you can learn all about it here.
