Advancing Additive Manufacturing with Sequential Simulations
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
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®
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®
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
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®
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
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.
Modeling a Sphere Falling on a Water Surface
Get the theory behind a quintessential CFD problem, the oscillating motion of a buoyant sphere, as well as step-by-step instructions for modeling it in COMSOL Multiphysics®.
