Optimizing Combustion Particle Control in an Electric Filter Design
To optimize the design of an electrostatic filter, researchers from Switzerland used multiphysics modeling, validating their results by comparing them to experimental data.
How to Create Animations Along the Azimuthal Direction for 3D Models
Here’s a useful postprocessing trick for presenting your 3D modeling results: combine slice plots along the azimuthal direction in order to generate a nontrivial animation.
Terminal Velocity, Drag Coefficients, and FIFA World Cup™ Predictions
Is it possible to predict the winners of the FIFA World Cup™? We forgo consulting a psychic and instead analyze the terminal velocity and drag coefficients of different balls with CFD simulation.
Modeling Free Surfaces in COMSOL Multiphysics® with Moving Mesh
You can model free liquid surfaces that do not undergo topology changes using moving mesh functionality in the COMSOL® software. Here’s a thorough guide on how to do so.
Studying the Van Allen Belts with Particle Tracing Simulation
Get a closer view of the Van Allen belts, 2 doughnut-shaped belts of radiation that surround Earth, with the help of particle tracing software.
What Is the Doppler Effect?
A siren passes by and you hear a change in pitch. A bug swims across a puddle, causing ripples on the surface. A star in the sky has a reddish hue. These are all examples of the Doppler effect.
How to Model Conductors in Time-Varying Magnetic Fields
You can use the AC/DC Module to perform frequency-domain simulations for conductors in time-varying magnetic fields by describing the skin effect.
Analyzing the Current Distribution in a Lead-Acid Battery Design
The lead-acid battery in your car is not much different from the original one developed by Gaston Planté in 1859. 1 change is that you can now analyze the current distribution using simulation.
