Modeling Reacting Flow in Porous Media

October 15, 2014

This blog post and embedded tutorial video demonstrate what inputs are required and what results you can obtain when modeling a porous reactor in COMSOL Multiphysics®.

Sometimes a Cigar Is More Than Just a Cigar

September 10, 2014

Are you a casual stogie fan? A cigar aficionado? We show off a simple model of a cigar to study the temperature distribution of the smoke and concentration of oxygen.

Isoelectric Focusing and the Migration of Chemical Species

July 21, 2014

Isoelectric focusing is a type of electrophoresis used by researchers to identify small chemical differences between molecules. Learn about using the COMSOL® software to analyze this process.

Modeling High-Performance Liquid Chromatography

June 13, 2014

High-performance liquid chromatography involves mixing a solvent from a reservoir with a sample zone containing the analytes to be separated and then pumping the mixture into an injector.

Ammonia Synthesis, a Complex and Nonlinear Process

May 8, 2014

In the final installment of our Chemical Kinetics blog series, we discuss the complex and nonlinear process of synthesizing ammonia. Get an overview of the equations and modeling considerations.

Chemical Parameter Estimation Using COMSOL Multiphysics

April 10, 2014

In this installment of our blog series on chemical kinetics, we discuss how to estimate the chemical parameters of your model in COMSOL Multiphysics®.

Enzyme Kinetics, Michaelis-Menten Mechanism

March 13, 2014

For the 100-year anniversary of the Michaelis–Menten mechanism, we honor the trailblazing publication the best way we know how — with simulation.

Buoyancy-Driven μPCR for DNA Amplification

February 26, 2014

True crime + simulation: The more DNA in a sample, the easier it is to accurately test and identify biomolecules, cells, and even an entire person during forensic investigations.
