Modeling the Pulsed Laser Heating of Semitransparent Materials
Laser light is often used to rapidly heat materials within the semiconductor processing industry. Here, we explore this method with heat transfer simulation.
Intro to Modeling Transient Heating of Solids in COMSOL Multiphysics®
Transient heat transfer models are easy to set up and solve, but the interpretation of their results can lead to confusion. Here, we explore this scenario with a simple heat transfer model.
Computing Orbital Heat Loads with COMSOL Multiphysics®
As of version 6.1, the Heat Transfer Module includes a new interface for defining satellite orbit and orientation, orbital maneuvers, and varying planetary properties.
The Use of COMSOL Multiphysics® in the Food Industry
Food for thought: Explore how failed products and the use multiphysics simulation inspire innovation in the food industry.
Analyzing Thermal Distribution in a Li-Ion Battery Pack
Deviating from optimal operating temperatures in a Li-ion battery pack can cause performance losses or even failure. Learn how to optimize the power design to control the temperature distribution.
The Science Behind Plant-Based Foods
You have probably heard of almond milk, coconut milk, and oat milk. But are you familiar with potato milk? This milk substitute hit grocery shelves in Europe in early 2022.
Investigating Glacier Motion with Viscoelastic Ice Simulations
Researchers at the Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI) use viscoelastic ice simulations to study the occurrence of crevasses in glaciers and iceberg calving. Learn how here.
FDA Benchmark: CFD Modeling of a Centrifugal Blood Pump
