Keynote Video: Simulating the Drying of Cellular Foods
How about them (dried) apples? Empa uses multiscale modeling to analyze the dehydration of soft cellular food products, such as dried fruit, and scale their processes for mass production.
Using Discontinuous Meshes for Conjugate Heat Transfer Modeling
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
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
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
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.
Examining Heat Transfer in a Friction Stir Welding Process
Friction stir welding (FSW) is an efficient, cost effective, and environmentally friendly process that can be optimized by studying the heat transfer involved via modeling.
Optimizing Thermal Processes in Carbon Manufacturing with Simulation
A guest blogger from SGL Carbon GmbH demonstrates how his organization uses heat transfer simulation to optimize thermal processes in carbon manufacturing.
Using the Inflow Boundary Condition in Nonisothermal Flow Simulations
Nonisothermal flow is a multiphysics problem, as it combines CFD and heat transfer analysis. Learn how to implement the Inflow boundary condition when simulating these types of scenarios.
