Fore! Analyzing the Performance of a Golf Ball with Simulation
Did you know that golf balls were originally made out of wood? We discuss the evolution of the golf ball and how simulation can be used to analyze modern golf ball designs.
Happy Birthday, Adhémar Jean Claude Barré de Saint-Venant
The shallow water equations, a derivation of the Navier–Stokes equations, and Saint-Venant’s principle can all be credited to French physicist Adhémar Jean Claude Barré de Saint-Venant.
Simulating the Pressure in an Ultrahigh Vacuum System
The ETpathfinder research facility in the Netherlands was built in anticipation of the proposed Einstein Telescope (ET), a third-generation observatory of gravitational waves.
The History and Science Behind Vinyl Records
As vinyl records explode in popularity, we take a look back at the history of records, as well as the interesting science behind how they are produced — and how they play music.
How to Model Metabolic Reaction Networks with COMSOL®
Certain ice creams, puddings, and candies have an extremely vivid yellow color that comes from vitamin B2. The manufacturing of this supplement is one example of a metabolic reaction network…
Happy Birthday, Egon Orowan
Egon Orowan found that the theory of dislocations could be used to explain the plastic deformation of ductile materials. He also studied geological fracture, munitions production, and more.
Curve Fitting of Solution Data in COMSOL Multiphysics®
We discuss curve fitting of continuous solution data, the concept of orthogonality, and how to fit solution data to a set of orthogonal functions for a simple and convenient postprocessing operation.
Analyzing LED Bulb Designs with Heat Transfer Simulation
LED bulbs are billed as more energy efficient than traditional bulbs, but they are not 100% efficient in turning electricity into light, making thermal management a vital design consideration.
