How to Place Inlet and Outlet Boundary Conditions in CFD Simulations
When setting up fluid flow simulations, at what distance can we apply boundary conditions without interfering with the process? Here, we discuss how to place inlet and outlet boundary conditions.
How Do Chladni Plates Make It Possible to Visualize Sound?
Is it possible to see sound? Find out for yourself in this blog post on the acoustics behind Chladni plates.
Calculating the Spectral Properties of an Optical Ring Resonator
The effect of a “whispering gallery” can be observed (a similar way) in another field of science entirely: light waves traveling in an optical ring resonator.
Happy Birthday, Sir George Gabriel Stokes

Studying the Program and Erase Cycle of an EEPROM Device
Using the Semiconductor Module, you can study the program and erase cycles of an electrically erasable programmable read-only memory (EEPROM) device.
Happy Birthday, Paul Dirac
Paul Dirac, a British physicist, sought to theorize physical concepts were not able to be explained in words, eventually laying the foundations for quantum theory as we know it today.
Examining Heat Transfer in a Friction Stir Welding Process
Friction stir welding (FSW) is an efficient, cost effective, and environmentally friendly process that can be optimized by studying the heat transfer involved via modeling.
Happy Birthday, George de Hevesy
George de Hevesy is known for expanding the uses for X-ray florescence and radioactive isotopes, as well as discovering the chemical element hafnium.
