Modeling the Official Euro 2024 Match Ball

June 14, 2024

Explore the complex design of the official match ball for the Euro 2024 tournament. Then, learn about how it compares to the match ball from the 2018 FIFA World Cup®.

Modeling the Speed and Stealth of the Darkstar

March 28, 2024

What would the shock waves around the Darkstar really look like at Mach 7.5? How stealthy is this hypersonic jet? Here, we use modeling and simulation to find out.

Modeling Pitting Corrosion in COMSOL Multiphysics®

July 13, 2021

When the process of generalized corrosion is allowed to continue, the initialization of a pit may occur on the metal surface, which is also referred to as the Evans drop experiment.

Simulating Wind Load on a Sports Car’s Side Door and Mirror

May 27, 2021

Vroom vroom: In this blog post, we use large eddy simulation (LES) and structural analysis to analyze wind loads and airflow on the door and side mirror of a sports car driving at high speeds.

An Introduction to the Physics of Rapid Detection Tests

April 20, 2021

Rapid detection tests based on lateral flow assay (LFA), also called immunochromatographic tests, can be thought of as quite advanced, yet very robust, microlaboratories. (Part 1 of 2)

Modeling the Spread of COVID-19 with COMSOL Multiphysics®

April 7, 2020

From susceptible to exposed and infected to recovered: See how numerical modeling can help us understand the dynamics of the COVID-19 pandemic and how it spreads.
