Reducing the Magnetic Signature of a Submarine

March 7, 2019

For a submarine to avoid detection and remain “under the radar”, engineers need to investigate the magnetic signature of the vessel’s design. Electromagnetics simulation is up to the task.

How Eddy Current Braking Technology Is Freeing Us from Friction

March 6, 2019

What moves must eventually stop. Unlike mechanical brakes, eddy current braking systems prevent damage when braking at high speeds. Hop on and learn more about eddy currents in this blog post.

Efficiently Analyze Charge Exchange Cell Designs Using Applications

March 5, 2019

Due to their neutral ion beam, charge exchange cells are used in processes ranging from ion implantation and semiconductor fabrication to synchrotron devices and medical research.

Hydrodynamic Thermal Transport in the Kinetic-Collective Model

February 28, 2019

F. Xavier Alvarez from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) discusses using COMSOL Multiphysics® to model heat transfer at the nanoscale and better understand transport processes.

Studying the Polarization of Light with a Fresnel Rhomb Simulation

February 27, 2019

A Fresnel rhomb is a simple optical system for studying light polarization. Follow along as we simulate linearly, elliptically, and circularly polarized incident light in a Fresnel rhomb.

Designing Heating Circuits with Multiphysics Simulation

February 12, 2019

The electronic message boards you see on the highway contain heating circuits. Their design is a truly multiphysics problem involving heat transfer, structural mechanics, and electromagnetics.

Keynote Video: Optimizing Cable Systems via Simulation

January 28, 2019

The length of cable for a mode of transportation depends on the amount of passengers, so a car uses ~5 km of cable and a cruise ship uses ~5000 km. Learn more about cable system design here.

Optimizing Planar Coils for PCBs with Electromagnetics Simulation

January 11, 2019

Planar coils are found in the PCBs of blood pressure sensors, RFID tags, induction cooktops, and more. Use layered shell technology to design optimized planar PCB coils, no matter the use case.
