How Do Bicycle Pedals Stay On?
Ever wonder why the left pedal of a bike has left-handed threads and the right pedal has right-handed threads, yet the pedals stay on when riding?
What Is the Best Way to Analyze Fuel Tank Vibration?
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.
How to Model a Chain Drive in COMSOL Multiphysics®
You’ve already learned how to use built-in geometry parts to model roller chain sprocket assemblies. Now, learn how to use the geometry as an input to automatically generate a chain drive model.
Building Roller Chain Geometries in the Multibody Dynamics Module
You can easily set up a geometry model of a roller chain, sprocket, or roller chain sprocket assembly using the built-in parametric geometry parts in the COMSOL Multiphysics Part Library.
How to Perform a Sensitivity Analysis in COMSOL Multiphysics®
How do the parameters of your design affect its performance? Understanding this relationship is a valuable part of the design process. By performing a sensitivity analysis, you can do just that.
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.
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.
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.
