The Physics of a Hopping Hoop
Have you heard of the hopping hoop? This problem has interested the minds of researchers and engineers for the last half-century. Let’s see how modeling can provide insight into this age-old case.
Why Do Road and Mountain Bikes Have Different Spoke Patterns?
Why do some bicycle rims come with warnings? Why do some bicyclists prefer rim brakes? To find answers, we model the forces in a bicycle rim for different brake types and spoke lacing patterns.
Fore! Analyzing the Performance of a Golf Ball with Simulation
Did you know that golf balls were originally made out of wood? We discuss the evolution of the golf ball and how simulation can be used to analyze modern golf ball designs.
Why Do Tennis Rackets Tumble? The Dzhanibekov Effect Explained…
If you toss a cellphone, tennis racket, wingnut, cereal box, or any object with 3 axes of rotation in the air, it will demonstrate this interesting and unusual effect…
How Do Bicycle Pedals Stay On?
Ever wonder why the left pedal of a bike has left-handed threads and the right pedal has right-handed threads, yet the pedals stay on when riding?
How to Model a Chain Drive in COMSOL Multiphysics®
You’ve already learned how to use built-in geometry parts to model roller chain sprocket assemblies. Now, learn how to use the geometry as an input to automatically generate a chain drive model.
Building Roller Chain Geometries in the Multibody Dynamics Module
You can easily set up a geometry model of a roller chain, sprocket, or roller chain sprocket assembly using the built-in parametric geometry parts in the COMSOL Multiphysics Part Library.
