Defeating Giant Movie Monsters Using Mathematical Modeling

August 5, 2019

The predator-prey equation can predict how we’d fare in a monster invasion, as well as real-world biology and ecology scenarios like shark overpopulation and tumor movement.

Optimizing Lubricated Systems with Numerical Simulation

July 11, 2019

Experts at SIMTEC designed a lubricated mechanical contact using numerical modeling and built an application for optimizing the use of lubrication in rolling and sliding bearings.

Happy Birthday, Maria Goeppert Mayer

June 28, 2019

2, 8, 20, 28, 50, 82, and 126 were the “magic numbers” that led Maria Goeppert Mayer to develop the first mathematical model for nuclear shells in an atom.

Optimizing PID Controller Performance with COMSOL Multiphysics®

June 11, 2019

PID controllers involve three components that must work together simultaneously, and it can be challenging to get each of them just right. That’s where process control simulation comes in.

Keynote Video: Improving Process Understanding with Applications

May 30, 2019

When an organization’s research spans across many industries, consistent product quality becomes the name of the game. That’s why Huntsman Advanced Materials turned to simulation applications.

Analyzing Topology Optimization of a Photoacoustic Spectroscopy Cell

May 24, 2019

Signals generated via photoacoustic spectroscopy are often weak and difficult to detect. Acoustic cells can be used to amplify the signal, but they need to be designed with sensitivity in mind.

Speeding Up DNA Separation in a Microchannel via Simulation

May 9, 2019

DNA separation takes a long time using traditional methods. Now, researchers from the Missouri University of Science and Technology have found a faster way to get the job done.

Verification Model: Postbuckling Analysis of a Spherical Cap

April 16, 2019

Think about what happens to a soda or beer can when you crush it. This phenomenon is called buckling, in which compressive stress causes sudden failure in a structure.
