What Is the Nature of Pain?

March 26, 2012

A second user story for the next COMSOL News is also reaching completion with exciting results (read about the first one here). This is an interesting case as it wasn’t really a group of people traditionally associated with finite element that managed to perform some pretty sophisticated modeling. In fact two of them are medical doctors while the final one has his background in physics.

Lots of Things to Model in a Wind Turbine

March 16, 2012

Following up on my previous blog post about protecting wind turbines from lightning strikes, I got to thinking about other modeling aspects of wind turbines. Structural mechanics is of course important, and we have a couple of models that center on this.

Stick a TV to the Wall Using Gecko Feet

February 22, 2012

Gecko lizards use dry adhesion forces to climb vertical and even backward-slanting walls. Yet, despite the strength they provide for holding their body to such walls, you can easily pluck them from their surface, and no residue is left behind. Imagine doing that with a TV.

University of Michigan Refines Solar Car Design

January 13, 2012

I have just read a cool article about the University of Michigan’s solar car. Back when I was a young and hopeful engineering student in Australia , the World Solar Challenge really sparked my imagination. This is the race from the top of Australia (Darwin) to the bottom (Adelaide) across the desert where the cars are powered by solar energy, which is basically captured by solar cells on the car roofs.

Including Operators and Expressions in a Multiphysics Simulation Is Easier Than You Think

December 11, 2009

As most skilled COMSOL users, I am sure you know that you are not limited to just selecting what is in our drop-down lists. Say that you have invented your own measure of structural stress. You want it to be equal to the quadratic mean of the Tresca and von Mises stresses. Go to Plot Parameters to find out what these predefined stresses are called (trescasmsld and misessmsld if you are modeling in 3D with the Structural Mechanics Module). Now […]

Multiphysics Conferences in Boston and Milan Draw More Than 700 Engineers, Researchers, and Scientists

November 9, 2009

BURLINGTON, MA (November 9, 2009) — More than 700 of the world’s top practitioners of multiphysics simulation recently gathered for the fifth annual COMSOL Conference in October. Complementary events were held in Boston and then Milan, Italy. The next stop for the annual world tour of this conference focused on multiphysics modeling and simulation for engineering and scientific research is Bangalore, India, November 13-14, 2009, followed by additional conferences in Shanghai, Beijing, Tokyo, and other locations.

Working with CAD

July 3, 2009

This week I will talk about CAD import. Many times, the first task a new user of COMSOL is up to is to lay their hands on the CAD models of the design team. After all, COMSOL handles the analysis, which needs to be closely tied with the design process. Ideally, design and analysis is integrated in one single process. There are different ways to marry the CAD models with the analysis. File based import is maybe the most common […]
