Modeling Phase Change in a Thermosiphon

March 12, 2018

A guest blogger from Noumenon Multiphysics writes about modeling phase change in a thermosiphon, a device that has been keeping houses warm since the 1800s.

Advancing Additive Manufacturing with Sequential Simulations

March 7, 2018

In some ways, additive manufacturing is like sewing or weaving. We talk to a professor of additive manufacturing about how sequential simulations can be used to analyze and optimize the process.

Comparing Static and Dynamic Wall Heat Exchangers with Simulation

February 27, 2018

We compare the performance and efficiency of static and dynamic compact wall heat exchanger designs using fluid-structure interaction.

Modeling the Flow of Ice in COMSOL Multiphysics®

February 8, 2018

The dynamics of glaciers are a complex (and “cool”) subject to study. One method is by using fluid flow simulation to analyze the flow of ice, from accumulation to ablation.

Simulating Natural Convection in Air with COMSOL Multiphysics®

February 7, 2018

From small electronic components to large buildings, natural convection is a transport phenomena found in engineering disciplines of all sizes. Here’s an example of natural convection in air.

Optimizing Thermophotovoltaic Designs with Heat Transfer Simulation

January 31, 2018

Thermophotovoltaic (TPV) systems, known for their flexible fuel choice options, immovable parts, and potential for efficient power generation, can be optimized with heat transfer modeling.

How to Model Moisture Flow in COMSOL Multiphysics®

January 24, 2018

Learn how to model moisture flow in COMSOL Multiphysics®, which you can apply to industrial examples such as building envelopes and food packaging.

Predicting Solute Transport in Groundwater Using Simulation

January 18, 2018

In order for groundwater to be useful for irrigation and drinking, we need to understand how its various solutes move through the water. The Subsurface Flow Module includes features for this.
