Defying Gravity with a Realistic Acoustic Levitator Model
It’s not just science fiction: Objects really can levitate. 1 way this is possible is by using sound waves to lift and suspend particles midair. Simulation can broaden the use of this technology.
Reducing the Magnetic Signature of a Submarine
For a submarine to avoid detection and remain “under the radar”, engineers need to investigate the magnetic signature of the vessel’s design. Electromagnetics simulation is up to the task.
How Eddy Current Braking Technology Is Freeing Us from Friction
What moves must eventually stop. Unlike mechanical brakes, eddy current braking systems prevent damage when braking at high speeds. Hop on and learn more about eddy currents in this blog post.
Designing Heating Circuits with Multiphysics Simulation
The electronic message boards you see on the highway contain heating circuits. Their design is a truly multiphysics problem involving heat transfer, structural mechanics, and electromagnetics.
Keynote Video: Optimizing Cable Systems via Simulation
The length of cable for a mode of transportation depends on the amount of passengers, so a car uses ~5 km of cable and a cruise ship uses ~5000 km. Learn more about cable system design here.
Optimizing Planar Coils for PCBs with Electromagnetics Simulation
Planar coils are found in the PCBs of blood pressure sensors, RFID tags, induction cooktops, and more. Use layered shell technology to design optimized planar PCB coils, no matter the use case.
Keynote Video: Designing Lightning Protection Systems with Simulation
Can lightning strike the same place twice? Either way, it is challenging to model. When designing lightning protection systems, NTS Lightning Technologies turned to multiphysics simulation.
Keynote Video: Designing Improved Heart Pumps with Simulation
Abbott Laboratories designed “the most complex machine ever implanted into a human being” — an LVAD for heart failure patients — using multiphysics modeling. The result? Saved lives.
