Analyzing Slope Stability Through the Shear Strength Reduction Method
Dams that are poorly designed or constructed are likely to fail. However, geotechnical engineers can account for the stability and reliability of a dam long before the structure is even built.
Introduction to Numerical Integration and Gauss Points
In this comprehensive blog post, we go over the theory behind numerical integration, Gaussian quadrature, Gauss points, weak contributions, and much more.
Modeling Multi-Ply Materials with Composite Materials Technology
In a follow-up to a previous blog post on paper mechanics modeling, Eric Linvill of Lightness by Design compares 3 methods of analysis for multi-ply materials such as paperboard.
Evaluating the Necking of an Elastoplastic Metal Bar Benchmark Model
To determine the strength of elastoplastic materials, engineers often use uniaxial testing to analyze necking instability. This benchmark model proves that simulation is also a reliable method.
How to Model Different Types of Damping in COMSOL Multiphysics®
Structural dynamics analyses can be difficult if you have to account for damping. Get a demonstration of how to use the different numerical models for damping in COMSOL Multiphysics. Part 2 of 2.
