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.
Keynote Video: EPFL Uses Simulation to Design a Hyperloop Pod
The EPFLoop team used multiphysics simulation to design the aeroshell, pressure vessel, and braking system of their hyperloop pod for the SpaceX 2018 competition. Get an inside look here.
2 Mesh Adaptation Methods: Enabling More Efficient Computations
Why adapt your mesh? For one thing, it helps you solve your computational problems more efficiently. Here, we show you 2 methods for adapting your mesh in COMSOL Multiphysics®.
Simulating Multiphase Flow in Porous Media with a Low Permeable Lens
Modeling phase transport helps you study the multiphase flow through a porous medium (such as groundwater through soil).
Studying Shock Wave Phenomena with a Shock Tube Application
Shock waves used to be a theoretical problem only. Then, shock tubes enabled experimentation, but it was costly and inefficient. Enter numerical modeling applications.
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.
FEM vs. FVM
Finite element methods, finite volume methods, or a hybrid approach: Which is the best choice for CFD? It depends on the fluid flow problem you’re trying to solve.
Improving Architectural Designs with Building Physics Simulation
Building physics simulation can help engineers develop more energy-efficient architectural designs. We talked to Built Environments, Inc. to get a few examples of how.
