Paper Mechanics and the Benefits of Modeling Paperboard Formation
Get a quick introduction to paper mechanics before guest blogger Eric Linvill discusses modeling a L&W bending resistance test piece for cost-benefit analyses in paperboard production.
How to Perform Structural Analyses Using Shock Response Spectra
Mechanical engineers: Learn how to find shock response spectra, use combination methods for eigenmodes, perform missing mass correction, and display your results with the COMSOL® software.
Improving Fire Protection for Structures via Building Physics Simulation
“I didn’t know there was a fire drill scheduled for today,” you say to a colleague. “There isn’t,” they respond. Then you smell smoke. Continue the story in this blog post on building physics.
Keynote Video: Optimizing Cable Systems via Simulation
The length of cable for a mode of transportation depends on the amount of passengers, so a car uses ~5 km of cable and a cruise ship uses ~5000 km. Learn more about cable system design here.
Happy Birthday, Berta Karlik
Berta Karlik helped discover the naturally occurring version of element 85, astatine. She was also the first woman to teach at the University of Vienna.
Keynote Video: EPFL Uses Simulation to Design a Hyperloop Pod
The EPFLoop team used multiphysics simulation to design the aeroshell, pressure vessel, and braking system of their hyperloop pod for the SpaceX 2018 competition. Get an inside look here.
Simulating Fluid-Structure Interaction in a Ball Check Valve
Simulate FSI in a ball check valve to find the flow rate, fluid pressure, and fluid velocity. The COMSOL® software includes a predefined multiphysics coupling that makes it simple.
Comparing 2 Shock Response Analyses for a Computer Circuit Board
Before hitting the market, motherboards and other fragile electronic components need to be able to withstand certain mechanical shock loads. That is where shock response analysis comes in.
