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.
Analyzing Multiphase Flow in an Airlift Loop Reactor Benchmark Model
