Validating an Acoustic Ray Tracing Simulation of a Chamber Music Hall
The well-known Konzerthaus Berlin theater boasts 3 separate halls: The Grand Hall, the Small Hall, and the modern Werner Otto Hall. Here, we explore the acoustics of the Small Hall with simulation.
The Science Behind Lie Detector Tests
Polygraph machines accurately monitor cardiovascular, respiratory, and electrodermal activity. But can they really determine whether a subject is being deceptive?
The North Pole Uses Simulation to Help Santa Take Flight
Happy holidays! Guest blogger Winter Frost returns to discuss how simulation is being used at the North Pole to help Santa take flight.
Characterizing Piezoelectric Sensors for Nondestructive Testing
Piezoelectric sensors must be carefully designed and calibrated. Simulation can help make this process more efficient…
Forming New Ideas with Generative Design in COMSOL®
Pencils were invented in the 16th century and erasers in the 18th century. However, it wasn’t until the 19th century that erasers were attached to pencils in the typical design we know today.
Why Do Road and Mountain Bikes Have Different Spoke Patterns?
Why do some bicycle rims come with warnings? Why do some bicyclists prefer rim brakes? To find answers, we model the forces in a bicycle rim for different brake types and spoke lacing patterns.
Modeling Piezoelectricity: Which Module to Use?
Acoustics Module, MEMS Module, Structural Mechanics Module: Which one should you use for your piezoelectric device modeling? Get a comprehensive overview of your options here.
Designing the Sound Absorption of Microlattice Structures
Using numerical simulation, you can design microlattice structures with sound-absorbing properties, and then print them via additive manufacturing without traditional manufacturing constraints.
