How to Analyze Thermoelectric Cooler Designs with a COMSOL App
A simulation application, such as one for a thermoelectric cooler design, can be used to test a variety of parameters in order to optimize a device for a specific use.
How to Model the Electromagnetic Heating of Underground Cables
Underground power cables are beneficial in many ways, but they are also subject to overheating. To design better cables, we can model their electromagnetic heating in COMSOL Multiphysics.
Efficiently Verify Electric Fields Outside Electrical Installations with Apps
Electrical installations are required to have their surrounding electric fields fall within certain levels. A simulation application can be used to verify measurements and adhere to standards.
Generate Custom Magnetic Prospecting Analyses by Designing an App
Magnetic prospecting is a technique that can be used to find valuable iron ore deposits. Using a simulation application, you can evaluate magnetic prospecting processes with customized analyses.
Keynote Video: Solving 2 Transport Process Problems with Simulation
In a keynote presentation from the COMSOL Conference 2016 Boston, Carl Meinhart from the University of California, Santa Barbara and Numerical Design discusses simulating transport processes.
How to Model Electrodynamic Magnetic Levitation Devices
Electrodynamic magnetic levitation can occur when there are time-varying magnetic fields in the vicinity of a conductive material. In this blog post, we will demonstrate how to model this principle with two examples: a TEAM benchmark problem of an electrodynamic levitation device and an electrodynamic wheel.
Designing a Power Generation Source for Bicycle Safety Lights
Today, we invite guest blogger Rune Thygesen of Reelight to discuss designing a power generation source for bicycle safety lights using simulation. At Reelight, we are developing an affordable bicycle safety light that is extremely easy for the end user to install. Along with a stronger and more flexible mounting system, we needed to develop a new power generation platform. Using simulation-based design, we created a power platform that is easy to use and quick to install.
Students Use Simulation to Optimize Hyperloop for Design Competition
Today, we invite guest blogger Bauke Kooger of Delft University of Technology to discuss modeling a magnetic suspension system for the Hyperloop. The Hyperloop is a proposed mode of transportation in which a vehicle, or pod, travels at the speed of sound through a low-pressure tube. At this speed, a magnetic suspension offers several advantages over systems such as air bearings or wheels. To test this, Delft’s Hyperloop team modeled their pod’s magnetic suspension in the COMSOL Multiphysics® software.
