Reaching New Heights in Pole Vaulting: A Multibody Analysis

February 4, 2016

We perform a multibody dynamics analysis of the different phases of pole vaulting using COMSOL Multiphysics®.

Simulating the Motion of a Self-Stable Bicycle

December 31, 2015

Did you know that modern bicycles are designed to be self stable? They’re good at keeping balance while moving uncontrolled. You can simulate this effect in COMSOL Multiphysics®.

Modeling the Dynamics of a Gyroscope

December 22, 2015

Gyroscopes and spinning tops aren’t just old-fashioned toys. Using models of these 2 structures, we illustrate the remarkable properties of rotating bodies.

App: Improving the Payload Capacity of a Truck-Mounted Crane

May 21, 2015

Manufacturers and engineers looking to optimize the payload, or carrying, capacity of a truck-mounted crane can easily test parameters with a simulation app. Take a look at our demo app example.

Instability in Portable Washing Machines

March 30, 2015

A varied distribution of clothing can cause walking instability in both traditional and portable washing machines. Multibody dynamics analysis can be used to avoid this effect in machine designs.

Improving the Operational Lifetime of a Reciprocating Engine

March 6, 2015

Many of today’s motor vehicles rely on reciprocating piston engines as their source of power. Multibody dynamics analysis can be used to analyze the operation and performance of these engines.

The Motions and Mechanics of a Truck-Mounted Crane

February 27, 2015

The Truck Mounted Crane tutorial model analyzes the forces on the cylinders and hinges of a crane during an operating cycle, combining multibody dynamics and structural analyses.

Simulating Vibration and Noise in a Washing Machine

January 15, 2015

When designing a washing machine, you must account for a nonuniform distribution of clothing during operation. Simulation can be used to analyze vibration and noise in this household device.
