Magnetic Damping of a Vibrating Cantilever Beam

January 12, 2015

We discuss modeling a cantilever beam in a magnetic field. The beam has some structural excitation at the free end, which vibrates it at a constant frequency. Get details in this blog post.

Happy Birthday, Michael Faraday

AltaSim Simulates Mie Scattering of Electromagnetic Waves

July 22, 2014

Researchers from AltaSim Technologies used simulation to analyze the Mie scattering of electromagnetic waves and how it compares to the Mie solution. Get the full story >>

Computing Voltages Produced by Electromagnetic Induction

June 17, 2014

Have you ever used a “shaker flashlight”? It’s powered by voltage from the electromagnetic induction that occurs when a powerful permanent magnet inside the device oscillates due to the shaking.

Simulating the Focusing Effect of Magnetic Quadrupoles

May 19, 2014

What’s a magnetic quadrupole lens? How do they work? How do you simulate their focusing effect? We answer these questions and more in this blog post…

Shaping Crystals for Camouflage Surfaces

April 28, 2014

Researchers at the University of Michigan discovered a way to shape crystals with a photochemical reaction, enabling crystal structures to appear in various patterns and colors (like chameleons!)
