September 15, 2016

Get a comprehensive background on probability distribution functions and the different ways you can sample random numbers from them in COMSOL Multiphysics®. Part 1 of a series on beam physics.

Particle Tracing in a Component of a Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer

July 25, 2016

Use multiphysics simulation to analyze the design of quadrupole mass filters (the key component of quadrupole mass spectrometers) and investigate the effect of fringe fields on these devices.

Evaluating Static Mixer Performance with a Simulation App

June 8, 2016

In this blog post, we go over the setup of an app designed to quantitatively and qualitatively analyze the performance of a static mixer using the Particle Tracing Module.

Different Ways to Count Particles in COMSOL Multiphysics

November 19, 2015

There are 3 ways you can count particles in your particle tracing simulations in COMSOL Multiphysics: during postprocessing, using accumulators, or with the Particle Counter feature.

Exploring the Venturi Effect

October 19, 2015

The Venturi effect: As a fluid flows through a constructed area of a pipe, its velocity increases and its static pressure decreases. Learn more about this effect and its application areas.

Dielectrophoretic Separation

January 23, 2015

Dielectrophoresis is a phenomenon in which an electric field is used to control the movement of electrically neutral particles. Learn about how to model this effect in both DC and AC fields.
