Chasing Waves: The Story of John Scott Russell and the KdV Equation
It all started with a horse: Learn about the history and use cases for solitons, as well as the life and work of the naval architect behind the KdV equation: John Scott Russell.
How to Solve a Classic CFD Benchmark: The Lid-Driven Cavity Problem
We demonstrate how to solve a classic benchmark problem in the field of computational fluid dynamics, the lid-driven cavity problem, using the COMSOL® software.
How to Create Complex Lens Geometries for Ray Optics Simulations
Learn how to set up the model geometry for a complex lens system in a way that ensures an effective and successful ray optics simulation.
Happy Birthday, Jean-Charles de Borda
Jean-Charles de Borda traveled the seas in the French military before making strides in the fields of fluid mechanics, geodesy, navigation, and more.
Analyzing Operating Mode Options for Helical Antennas
Simple but effective, helical antennas are used in smart implants, RFID, radio, GPS, space probes, and more. You can use RF simulation to analyze the operating mode options for these antennas.
Happy Birthday, Claude Shannon
Claude Shannon ushered in a new age of communications technology, contributing ideas about testing digital circuits, coding messages in binary, and programming artificial intelligence.
Teaching Students About Acoustics Phenomena with Apps
Acoustics concepts and their underlying theories can be difficult for engineering students to visualize. For one university, simulation applications proved to be an effective teaching tool.
Modeling Fluid-Structure Interaction in a Heart Valve
The average human heart beats 100,000 times per day, but what if the person has cardiac issues? Modeling fluid-structure interaction in a heart valve can help researchers develop new treatments.
