Using 3D Models to Investigate Inductive Effects in a Submarine Cable
It takes a modern desktop computer ~30 minutes to compute a 3D cable model with twisted magnetic armor. Consequently, 3D cable models are replacing empirical models in the power cable industry.
Modeling Cables in COMSOL Multiphysics®: 8-Part Tutorial Series
Your roadmap to modeling cables with the AC/DC Module and COMSOL Multiphysics®: An 8-part tutorial series that starts with the basics and gradually adds complexity and multiple physics.
Modeling Heat Transfer in Thin Layers via Layered Material Technology
We answer some questions you may have about the Layered Material functionality in the COMSOL® software: What does it do? How do you update existing models? How do simulations benefit from it?
Evanescent Component of the Nonparaxial Gaussian Beam
The evanescent component of the nonparaxial Gaussian beam background field is available as a feature in the Wave Optics and RF modules as of COMSOL Multiphysics® version 5.5.
Who Discovered the Integrated Circuit?
Like many of the world’s greatest innovations, credit for developing the integrated circuit is shared by many names, including Geoffrey Dummer, Jack Kilby, and Robert Noyce.
6 Ways Engineers Are Using Simulation to Help the Environment
Energy-efficient buildings and appliances. Safe nuclear waste storage. Well-preserved freshwater lakes. These are just a few examples of how simulation is being used to help the environment.
Measuring the SAR of a Human Head Next to a Wi-Fi Antenna
Many wireless devices include antennas that expose consumers to RF energy. Designers of these devices need to understand the health implications caused by electromagnetic exposure, such as SAR.
Modeling the Scattering of Light Off of an Object on a Substrate
A common modeling scenario in wave electromagnetics: computing the scattering of light off of a structure patterned on top of a uniform dielectric substrate.
