Happy Birthday, Hendrik Lorentz
Hendrik Lorentz won the Nobel Prize for his work in electron theory, but that only one of the many contributions he made to theoretical physics, electromagnetism, and optics.
How to Analyze a Glacier via Gradient-Based Optimization
This post highlights a gradient-based optimization method that geophysical engineers can use to analyze, for instance, the movement and sensitivity of a glacier.
Investigating a Three-Port Ferrite Circulator Design with RF Simulation
Get a quick introduction to microwave circulators and modeling them with the RF Module. The featured example is a three-port ferrite circulator.
Evaluating a Turbocharger Design with Rotordynamics Analysis
Like a “turbocharged” cup of coffee, an actual turbocharger also increases speed, but in the operation of a combustion engine, not how fast your morning cup wakes you up.
Happy Birthday, Jacob Perkins
Jacob Perkins was an American inventor and mechanical engineer. Most notably, he’s responsible for an appliance that we all have in our kitchens: the refrigerator.
Optimizing Thermal Processes in Carbon Manufacturing with Simulation
A guest blogger from SGL Carbon GmbH demonstrates how his organization uses heat transfer simulation to optimize thermal processes in carbon manufacturing.
Modeling a Tubular Reactor for Optimized Polymer Manufacturing
Chemical engineers can model tubular reactors to optimize them for specific manufacturing and production processes, such as for the polymerization of polyester, as this example shows.
Analyzing Cyclic Voltammetry at a Microdisk Electrode with Simulation
What is cyclic voltammetry, and why is it important in the design of microdisk electrodes? We discuss all of this and more in this electrochemical engineering blog post.
