Intro to Modeling Transient Heating of Solids in COMSOL Multiphysics®
Transient heat transfer models are easy to set up and solve, but the interpretation of their results can lead to confusion. Here, we explore this scenario with a simple heat transfer model.
Computing Orbital Heat Loads with COMSOL Multiphysics®
As of version 6.1, the Heat Transfer Module includes a new interface for defining satellite orbit and orientation, orbital maneuvers, and varying planetary properties.
Losses in Three-Phase Transmission Lines
Explore how to model the losses in three copper wires in a linear and an equilateral arrangement.
How Large of a Model Can You Solve with COMSOL®?
Ever wonder how large of a model you can solve in COMSOL Multiphysics®? It depends on memory requirements, model size, and the dimension of your finite element problem.
Computing and Visualizing Satellite Orbits in COMSOL®
Here, we introduce a new, out-of-this-world tutorial model of a spacecraft in orbit.
Computing and Using Partial Inductance with COMSOL®
COMSOL Multiphysics® version 6.0 brings new functionality for computing total and partial inductances and AC resistances. Get an overview here.
Creating Schlieren-Type Visualizations in COMSOL Multiphysics®
Did you know that Schlieren imaging might predate written history? Here, we explore this ancient imaging technique with CFD modeling.
