Photos from the COMSOL Conference 2014 Bangalore

December 22, 2014

The COMSOL Conference made its annual stop in Bangalore a few weeks ago. Engineers and academics from across the country gathered to participate in the exciting two-day event. Here are some photos from the COMSOL Conference 2014 Bangalore.

COMSOL Conference 2014 Bangalore Award Winners

December 19, 2014

The COMSOL Conference 2014 Bangalore brought together many users from various parts of the world, giving them the opportunity to present their work and ideas, network, and socialize. All of the posters and presentations presented at the conference were fantastic and truly deserving of recognition. The program committee was faced with difficult decisions in selecting the best papers and posters from each category. Here are this year’s winners.

Fillet Away Your Electromagnetic Field Singularities

December 18, 2014

No matter how much you refine the mesh at that corner in your geometry, the electromagnetic field that you are computing never seems to settle on a converged value. Is this a problem? If so, what can you do about it? Read on to find out.

Electroplating Simulations for Printed Circuit Board Designers

December 17, 2014

The printed circuit board (PCB) is the heart of almost any electronic product, carrying the components and copper wires supporting its functionality. The manufacture often involves electroplating, a process that can vary between designs. This leaves you, the engineer behind its simulation and optimization, constantly creating new models. What if you could push much of this work onto the designers, engineers, and technicians behind its design and manufacture, having them run their own electroplating simulations for PCBs? See how here.

Modeling Beam Neutralization with a Charge Exchange Cell

December 16, 2014

Charge exchange cells are often used as a way to obtain neutralized beams of energetic particles. In this blog post, we introduce a model of a simple charge exchange cell and analyze its neutralization efficiency.

Introducing the Design Module

December 15, 2014

Have you been interested in learning how to create fillets on 3D designs or how to generate shell approximations of imported geometric objects? The latest version of the COMSOL Multiphysics® software includes the new Design Module, which provides these and other tools for easier and more advanced geometric modeling. This optional add-on also includes interoperability tools for the import and export of CAD designs. Let’s take a look in more detail at what you can do with these new features.

An Analysis of Caustic Surface Generation at the Vdara® Hotel

December 12, 2014

Among its neighboring buildings on the Las Vegas strip, the Vdara® hotel can be identified by its unique crescent-shaped design. While visually appealing, this architectural element became an area of concern as it contributed to the development of a caustic surface on the hotel’s pool deck. As a result, guests at particular locations experienced severe sunburns at certain days and times of the year. Here, we model the generation of a caustic surface in the case of the Vdara® hotel.

Membrane Interface Improvements in Version 5.0

December 11, 2014

The Membrane interface has undergone a number of changes with the release of COMSOL Multiphysics version 5.0. This includes a restructured menu, new feature nodes, improvements to the Linear Elastic Material model, and support for the Hyperelastic Material model. You might remember the Nonlinear Structural Materials model Inflation of a Spherical Rubber Balloon. We have now rebuilt it using the Membrane interface. I will discuss these changes and the new model in today’s blog post.
