Video Tutorial on Simulating a Gate Valve in Pipe Branch

Fanny Littmarck | July 2, 2012

We’ve been running these “Lunch Time Web Tutorials” over the past couple of months, featuring 45 minutes of solving a particular problem following a comprehensive step-by-step format. Each webisode involves a different type of engineering problem, one of which focused on the modeling of a gate valve in a pipe branch. We are now making this available as a set of two videos for those who missed the live tutorial.

Earlier this month COMSOL sponsored the 3-day PlanetPTC event in Orlando, Florida. This was our first time as silver sponsors at PlanetPTC, and my colleagues came back in good spirits. Not long ago, Creo™ 2.0 was introduced, and PlanetPTC provided a great opportunity to get filled in on the latest news PTC has to offer in Creo™ as well as other products. A number of the presentations focused on news and improvements in Creo™ 2.0 (naturally), and some showcased “best […]

It’s no news that multiphysics simulations can help companies build better products, and every day COMSOL users bring new product designs or ideas for improvements to life. That said, every so often someone does something particularly fascinating. If you’re following along the email communications from AltaSim Technologies you will receive a technology breakthrough message this week. This latest email from AltaSim is bringing attention to an important clean energy project they are working on with Dais Analytic for the U.S. […]

There are many exciting new features in the Particle Tracing Module for COMSOL Multiphysics version 4.3. The secondary particle emission feature is particularly fascinating. “This new option for the Wall Condition allows you to model filter multipliers and multipactors, which were previously very difficult to model”, says Dan Smith, Development Team Leader at COMSOL. A mathematical expression, like a logical expression containing the particle energy for instance, can be used to determine the number of secondary particles to be released. […]

Knowing the sun’s radiation and thermal effects is very important to designers within the building industry, especially in designing “green” buildings. Heat transfer also plays a vital role in designing outdoor devices in terms of maintaining temperatures in extreme hot or cold environments. To use the words of Nicolas Huc, project leader for the Heat Transfer Module development at COMSOL in France: “it makes a huge difference if you forget to take the sun’s radiation within account”.
