Optimizing ISFET Designs with Multiphysics Simulation

July 2, 2018

Ion-sensitive field-effect transistors (ISFETs) measure pH levels for soil analysis, the production of dairy products, and more. Multiphysics simulation can help us optimize these devices.

How to Provide Structural Stability in Thermal Expansion Simulations

June 28, 2018

Say you want to compute thermal expansion and stresses in an object, but you don’t know what constraints you need. That’s where the Rigid Motion Suppression feature comes in.

Analyzing Fine Chemical Production in Plate Reactors

June 27, 2018

Batch reactors, continuous reactors, plate reactors, oh my. Here, we discuss analyzing the fine chemical production process in a plate reactor using chemical modeling.

The Nonparaxial Gaussian Beam Formula for Simulating Wave Optics

June 26, 2018

Here’s your introduction to the nonparaxial gaussian beam formula, which is used for simulating wave optics problems in COMSOL Multiphysics®.

Analyzing a Centrifugal Pump Design with Frozen Rotor Approximation

June 25, 2018

Mechanical engineers can analyze the design of centrifugal pumps using the Frozen Rotor Approximation, which is available in the Mixer Module, an add-on to the CFD Module.

Modeling Copper Electrodeposition on a Circuit Board

June 21, 2018

Copper electrodeposition is used to manufacture PCBs. Here, we discuss modeling the electrodeposition of copper in the trench of a PCB.

Modeling a MOS Capacitor with the Semiconductor Module

June 20, 2018

MOS capacitors (MOSCAPs) contain 3 main parts: a semiconductor body or substrate, an insulator film, and a metal electrode (or gate). You can use the Semiconductor Module to model MOSCAP designs.

Happy Birthday, Blaise Pascal

June 19, 2018

Blaise Pascal was a mathematician who wanted to make mathematical calculations easier. His work in projective geometry led to what is now known as Pascal’s theorem.
