Computing Porosity and Permeability in Porous Media with a Submodel

September 27, 2017

Porous materials have complex geometries and may therefore be difficult to model. Setting up a microscale submodel is a useful approach to find the porosity and permeability of the medium.

Studying the Thermal Performance of Phase Change Materials

September 18, 2017

Certain building materials, like plaster, are enhanced with phase change materials (PCMs) to assist in keeping buildings cool in the summer and warm in the winter. But how effective are they?

Analyzing a New Droplet-Forming Fluidic Junction with Simulation

September 8, 2017

A novel oscillatory microfluidic junction design, called a “batwing”, is improving the field of droplet microfluidics by consistently producing uniform and complex double-emulsion droplets.

How to Save Computational Time with a One-Way Coupling Approach

September 6, 2017

Simulating heat transfer in fluids with forced convection can be very computationally expensive. Did you know that you can save a lot of time and resources with a one-way coupling approach?

Using Simulation to Study Ultrasound Focusing for Clinical Applications

August 31, 2017

Guest blogger Thomas Clavet of EMC3 Consulting discusses the simulation of ultrasound focusing via phased array and geometrically focused probe designs for clinical uses.

Simulating the Thermocompression Bonding of an Underfill Adhesive

August 29, 2017

Underfill adhesives are often used in microelectronics to hold different components together. Simulate the thermocompression bonding process of such an adhesive to ensure its effectiveness.

Finding the Ideal Thickness for the Insulation of a Pipeline

August 28, 2017

Pipelines need to be properly insulated in order to transport products like petroleum and natural gas across long distances. Use COMSOL® to find the ideal thickness for a pipeline insulation.

How to Use the Well Feature in Subsurface Flow Models

August 21, 2017

The Well feature makes it easier to set up and mesh well geometries for subsurface flow modeling. Learn how to take advantage of this feature’s settings and capabilities.
