How to Automate the Setup of Your Multibody System Models
The Automated Model Setup functionality includes 2 features that will speed up your modeling process for multibody systems: Create Rigid Domains and Create Gears.
Evaluating Stress and Thermal Expansion in a Portal Crane
As extreme heat waves increase in frequency, it is important to consider thermal expansion when designing bridges. With COMSOL Multiphysics®, you can.
Heat Transfer in Biological Tissue with Thermal Damage Analysis
Hepatic tumor ablation using radiofrequency heating, microwave coagulation therapy, and other cancer treatments can be studied by modeling the electromagnetic heating of biological tissues.
Finding the Best Way to Make Crêpes with Fluid Dynamics Research
The recipe for the perfect crêpe calls for flour, eggs, milk, sugar, butter, and…simulation? Fluid dynamicists used simulation to solve the optimal coverage problem for crêpe making.
The Importance of Thermal Radiation in Your Models
Conduction and convection tend to get more attention from simulation engineers, but radiation plays an important role as well. Learn how (and why) to account for thermal radiation in your models.
Optimizing Lubricated Systems with Numerical Simulation
Experts at SIMTEC designed a lubricated mechanical contact using numerical modeling and built an application for optimizing the use of lubrication in rolling and sliding bearings.
Predicting the Unpredictable: Simulating Earthquake Mechanics
In case of an earthquake, people regularly practice hiding under their desks. Another way to prepare? Using response spectrum analysis to determine the structural stability of a building subject to this type of seismic event.
Analyzing Vibrations in Rotating Machinery Due to Bearing Misalignment
You can use structural analysis to compare the angular velocity, axial displacement, and bearing reaction moment on the shaft for rotating machinery with aligned and misaligned bearings.
