Finding the Best Coal Arrangement for Even Heat in a Grill
Pizza on the grill? It’s actually quite delicious. Here, we use heat transfer modeling to determine how the grill’s coals should be arranged for even heating.
Why Doesn’t the Ice Cream in a Baked Alaska Melt?
The ice cream in a baked Alaska stays frozen, even when placed in a hot oven. How is this possible? We investigate this mysterious dessert with heat transfer simulation.
Studying the Migration of Mineral Oil Hydrocarbons in Food Packaging
Food packaging can contain hazardous mineral oils. To analyze the migration patterns of mineral oil hydrocarbons for various food packaging scenarios, German researchers used COMSOL Multiphysics®.
Optimizing the Hydration Operation in the Thermal Processing of Dates
To optimize the hydration process for dates, a team of researchers turned to experimental studies and simulation analyses. Learn more here.
Using Apps to Optimize Induction Heating for Food Processing
Numerical modeling apps can be used to accelerate the optimization of induction heating processes for food processing applications.
Modeling Fermentation in Beer Brewing Yields a Better Product
Fancy a pint? COMSOL Multiphysics® can be used to study the beer fermentation process, identifying ways to optimize its efficiency and serve up a better-tasting glass of suds.
Making a Recipe for the Perfect Soft-Boiled Egg with Simulation
In a physics course at the Technische Universiteit Eindhoven (TU/e), students investigate the science behind cooking the perfect soft-boiled egg using simulation and real-world experimentation.
Model How the Bubbles in a Glass of Stout Beer Sink, Not Rise
Ever notice how the bubbles in certain kinds of stout beer sink to the bottom of the glass instead of rising to the top? We explain this phenomenon using fluid flow simulation.
