Designing Inductors with a Simulation App at Bombardier Transportation

November 20, 2020

Every day, 500 million passengers in 200 cities and 60 countries ride a train featuring Bombardier Transportation products. See how apps help speed up the design process for a train component…

Introducing the Porous Media Flow Module

June 11, 2020

From multiphase transport and non-Darcian flow to local thermal equilibrium and nonequilibrium, we discuss the advanced porous media flow modeling you can do with the Porous Media Flow Module.

Modeling Heat Transfer in Thin Layers via Layered Material Technology

May 15, 2020

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?

6 Ways Engineers Are Using Simulation to Help the Environment

April 22, 2020

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.

Material Characterization by Means of Simulation

March 10, 2020

Carbon-based materials, such as synthetic specialty graphites, are found in many industries, including solar, semiconductor, car manufacturing, ceramics, and metallurgy.

Simulating the Carburization and Quenching of a Steel Gear

March 9, 2020

Gears are typically carburized and quenched to improve their fatigue durability and wear resistance. Simulation can help determine how these processes affect the gear’s residual stress state.

Thermal Equilibrium and Nonequilibrium Heat Transfer in Porous Media

March 3, 2020

Heat transfer in porous media can occur under thermal equilibrium, such as a rock consisting of different minerals or trapped fluids, or nonequilibrium, like a thermal energy storage (TES) unit.

Verifying a HAMSTAD Benchmark for an Insulated Roof Model

February 25, 2020

Heat and moisture (HAM) transport is an important area of study for building materials and structures, as it can affect the rate and coverage area of mold growth.
