How Does the Choice of Ray Tracing Algorithm Affect the Solution?

June 13, 2017

When performing a high-frequency optics simulation, do you use a sequential, nonsequential, or exact ray tracing algorithm? Learn how to choose to make the most of your solution.

Simulating Powder Compaction with Porous Plasticity Models

June 12, 2017

Powder compaction is an important and popular technique in many manufacturing industries. You can use porous plasticity models to analyze and improve the powder compaction process.

How to Model Heat and Moisture Transport in Air with COMSOL®

June 9, 2017

First, we discuss how to model heat transport in moist air. Then, we add complexity by demonstrating how to couple heat and moisture transport in air in your simulation.

Optimizing Microwave Furnaces for Solar-Grade Silicon Production

June 8, 2017

For silicon to be considered “solar grade”, it has to be 99.9999% pure. Therefore, microwave furnaces used to produce solar-grade silicon need to be optimized for quality and efficient output.

How to Calculate a Capacitance Matrix in COMSOL Multiphysics®

June 7, 2017

Calculating the capacitance between two conductors is simple, but adding more conductors to the mix (as is the case with touchscreens, transmission lines, and capacitive sensors) adds complexity.

How to Model the Optical Properties of Rough Surfaces

June 6, 2017

We develop a computational model for calculating the optical properties of rough surfaces, such as incident light on a dielectric material with random variations in height and thickness.

How to Create a Randomized Geometry Using Model Methods
