A Simulation App for Helical Spring Design and Analysis

August 21, 2020

Helical springs are found everywhere from medical devices to consumer and industrial products. Despite being commonplace for centuries, the design of a helical spring can be complex.

Optimizing an NIV Mask Design with Multiphysics Simulation

August 13, 2020

NIV masks offer a form of noninvasive monitoring and ventilation for COVID-19 patients, which lessens the need for ventilators and other mechanical respirators.

What Is the Best Way to Analyze Fuel Tank Vibration?

August 4, 2020

In a traditional approach for modeling a fuel tank, the fluid mass is dispersed through the tank’s wetted surface. A multiphysics method specifically models the acoustic pressure in the fluid.

Computing the HRTF of a Scanned Geometry of a Human Head

July 14, 2020

Designing cochlear implants, hearing aids, headphones, and other audio devices requires precise measurements of the head-related transfer function (HRTF). Simulation and geometry import can help.

Modeling an Ear Canal’s Acoustics to Optimize In-Ear Audio Products

July 7, 2020

Ever notice an echo-like sound when wearing headphones or earbuds? Called the occlusion effect, this phenomenon can be studied using acoustics modeling to design better in-ear audio products.

Introduction to the Elastic Waves, Time Explicit Interface

May 28, 2020

From nondestructive testing to seismic wave propagation in soil and rock, there are many application areas that involve the propagation of elastic waves in solids and vibrations in structures.

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.
