Simulating Multiphase Flow in Porous Media with a Low Permeable Lens

December 13, 2018

Modeling phase transport helps you study the multiphase flow through a porous medium (such as groundwater through soil).

Studying Shock Wave Phenomena with a Shock Tube Application

December 10, 2018

Shock waves used to be a theoretical problem only. Then, shock tubes enabled experimentation, but it was costly and inefficient. Enter numerical modeling applications.

Keynote Video: Designing Improved Heart Pumps with Simulation

December 5, 2018

Abbott Laboratories designed “the most complex machine ever implanted into a human being” — an LVAD for heart failure patients — using multiphysics modeling. The result? Saved lives.

FEM vs. FVM

November 29, 2018

Finite element methods, finite volume methods, or a hybrid approach: Which is the best choice for CFD? It depends on the fluid flow problem you’re trying to solve.

Using Discontinuous Meshes for Conjugate Heat Transfer Modeling

November 21, 2018

You can use different discontinuous meshes in neighboring domains in COMSOL Multiphysics®. This capability comes in handy, particularly when modeling conjugate heat transfer problems.

Understanding Classical Gray Body Radiation Theory

November 1, 2018

Imagine how efficient an incandescent lamp with an infrared suppressing black body filament would be. Alas, classical gray body radiation theory tell us this “dream lamp” is an impossibility…

Improving Architectural Designs with Building Physics Simulation

October 4, 2018

Building physics simulation can help engineers develop more energy-efficient architectural designs. We talked to Built Environments, Inc. to get a few examples of how.

Studying the Peltier and Seebeck Effects in Thermoelectric Devices

September 20, 2018

We go over 2 key concepts in themoelectricity, the Seebeck and Peltier effects, and how to account for them when simulating heating and cooling in thermoelectric devices.
