Evaluating a UHF RFID Tag Design with Simulation
COMSOL Multiphysics version 5.1 introduces a new tutorial model of a UHF RFID tag. RFID tags allow you to identify and monitor both inanimate objects and living creatures through the use of electromagnetic fields. The UHF RFID tag has a wider range than other types of RFID tags and is often used to identify animals. We can evaluate the performance of the tag through an analysis of the electric field and far-field radiation pattern.
What to Expect from COMSOL Multiphysics Version 5.1
Today marks the release of COMSOL Multiphysics version 5.1. The latest COMSOL software version brings you 20 demo apps and many new features and functionality updates to numerous products. Here’s what you can expect after downloading version 5.1.
Cloaking Advancements for Flexural Waves in Elastic Plates
Previous work on cloaking for flexural waves in elastic plates presented limitations and near invisibility. Now, a research group in Europe has figured out a new theoretical framework to both overcome the limitations and achieve exact cloaking for flexural waves in Kirchhoff-Love plates. To visualize and test the quality of the cloak, they ran COMSOL Multiphysics simulations.
Where to Find Application Builder Tutorial Apps
With the release of the Application Builder, we also bring you tutorial apps for getting started. You can find these applications both within the Application Library in the software and online in the Model Gallery. This is your resource on where to find the tutorials, including how to run the Application Library update.
Hydrocooling Analysis for Fresh Produce Safety
Worried about bacteria in your tomatoes? Research presented at the COMSOL Conference 2014 Boston shows where bacteria seeps through during hydrocooling — and how we can avoid ingesting it.
COMSOL Multiphysics® Version 5.0 Now Available
It’s here. We have now released the latest version of COMSOL Multiphysics® simulation software — version 5.0 — and it’s revolutionary. Why? You will now be able to turn your COMSOL Multiphysics models into apps and share them with your colleagues and customers. We are also releasing three new add-on products and numerous updates to existing products. Here’s a quick run-down of the release news.
Avoiding Figure Skating Joint Stress with Measuring Device
Figure skating is a beautiful but dangerous sport; repetitive jumping and landing on ice can cause a lot of joint stress. Researchers are working on “smart” blades to measure the force that is exerted on the ice. The data could then be used to prevent injuries.
Ada Lovelace Day, Celebrating Women in STEM
Today, many are celebrating Ada Lovelace Day around the world. This day is not a public holiday, but a day to honor women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
