What Happens If I Use 2 Different Unit Systems in 1 Simulation?
Using 2 different unit systems for 1 project has led to historical disasters. Fortunately, you can use different unit systems in your simulation without issues by using the COMSOL® software.
How to Model Optical Anisotropic Media with COMSOL Multiphysics®
Erasmus Bartholinus first observed the optical effect of birefringence in 1669. Today, you can observe this effect with a specialized modeling approach for optical anisotropic media.
Should I Fillet the Geometry in My Electromagnetic Heating Analysis?
You want to analyze electromagnetic heating around sharp corners in your simulation. Do you round off the corners by adding a fillet? We go over cases where you should and shouldn’t do so.
Happy Birthday, Christian Doppler
The Doppler effect is observed both on Earth (such as the change in pitch when a siren passes you) and in space (such as the red shift of a planet). Learn about this phenomenon’s namesake.
How to Model Wet Chemical Etching in COMSOL Multiphysics®
Wet chemical etching was one of Rembrandt’s favorite methods for creating self-portraits. Now, it’s used by engineers to produce integrated circuits, MEMS devices, and pressure sensors.
Analyzing Magnetic Flowmeters for Blood Flow Measurement
Biomedical researchers used multiphysics modeling in order to understand how blood vessel movement influences the sensitivity of their flow meter designs. Get the full story here.
Happy Birthday, Johannes Diderik van der Waals
Johannes Diderik van der Waals made many groundbreaking contributions to our understanding of liquids and gases, but his greatest passion was for education.
Optimizing a Microlens Design for Optogenetics Applications
Optogenetics is a field of study that could shed light on neurology and memory. To design an optimized microlens for optogenetics uses, these researchers turned to multiphysics simulation.
