Happy Birthday, Maria Goeppert Mayer
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®
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
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
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
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
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.
Defying Gravity with a Realistic Acoustic Levitator Model
It’s not just science fiction: Objects really can levitate. 1 way this is possible is by using sound waves to lift and suspend particles midair. Simulation can broaden the use of this technology.
Protecting Against Atmospheric Corrosion with Simulation
Certain environmental factors, such as humidity and snow, can lead to atmospheric corrosion. The result? Rusty bikes, cars, and other metal structures. Simulation can protect against this effect.
