Fat-Washing Cocktails on an Industrial Scale

February 2, 2017

Bacon-flavored vodka? Pecan-infused bourbon? The fat-washing process extracts the flavors from fat and dissolves it into alcohol, and it can even be scaled up to an industrial level.

Finding the Best Coal Arrangement for Even Heat in a Grill

January 25, 2017

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?

November 18, 2016

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

November 17, 2016

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®.
