Computing and Visualizing Satellite Orbits in COMSOL®
Here, we introduce a new, out-of-this-world tutorial model of a spacecraft in orbit.
Axisymmetric Solid Mechanics with a Twist
As of version 6.0, you can easily include circumferential displacements in 2D axisymmetric models using the Solid Mechanics interface. Check out one example here.
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.
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.
