Applying a Hybrid Approach to Fracture Flux Conservation

September 13, 2016

A guest blogger from Boffin Solutions, LLC, a COMSOL Certified Consultant, discusses using a hybrid approach to calculate fracture flux in thin structures with the COMSOL® software.

Analyze Porous Structures with Numerical Modeling

May 31, 2016

Using COMSOL Multiphysics® and the Poroelasticity interface, you can accurately analyze porous materials to evaluate and avoid deformation in porous structures.

Investigating Damage to Cultural Heritage Sites with Simulation

May 3, 2016

To find out why paintings in Saint Catherine’s Chapel in the Netherlands are deteriorating, researchers from the Eindhoven University of Technology combined physical measurements and simulation.

How to Obtain Oil Cost-Effectively with Multilateral Wells

August 18, 2014

1 example of how numerical simulation benefits the oil & gas industry: You can predict the stability of a multilateral well to determine if it will need expensive mechanical stabilization.

AMPHOS 21 on Simulating Carbon Sequestration

May 5, 2014

Carbon dioxide sequestration is a proposed solution to releasing carbon dioxide into the atmosphere that involves storing the CO2 in geological formations. AMPHOS 21 models this process.
