Studying Presbyopia with an Optomechanical Model of the Human Eye
You have to see this multiphysics simulation research: To help combat the effects of presbyopia in aging eyes, Kejako built a 3D optomechanical model of a full human eye.
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.
How to Model the Compression of a Hyperelastic Foam
When characterizing hyperelastic materials, how do you ensure accuracy? Here, we show how to model the compression of a sphere made of an elastic foam using experimental data.
Seeing Through Solids: Discovery and Applications of Photoacoustics
The field of photoacoustics started with Alexander Graham Bell and some sunlight. Now, photoacoustic imaging is used for nearly anything involving generating images of opaque material samples.
Examining Vibration in a Lumped Model of the Human Body
Engineers working to reduce the effects of whole body vibration (WBV) in transportation methods can analyze their systems and designs using a lumped model of the human body.
How Do Chladni Plates Make It Possible to Visualize Sound?
Is it possible to see sound? Find out for yourself in this blog post on the acoustics behind Chladni plates.
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.
Analyzing a Loudspeaker Array with a Bessel Panel Benchmark Model
