Designing District Heating Networks Using Topology Optimization
District heating networks help power plants reach high efficiencies by utilizing cogeneration, which is especially helpful in the winter. How does topology optimization fit in? Keep reading…
Finding the Ideal Thickness for the Insulation of a Pipeline
Pipelines need to be properly insulated in order to transport products like petroleum and natural gas across long distances. Use COMSOL® to find the ideal thickness for a pipeline insulation.
Analyzing a Probe Tube Microphone Design with Acoustics Simulation
Probe tube microphones are an important component in hearing aids. Learn about how you can use acoustics modeling to analyze the design and predict the performance of these devices.
Keynote Video: Locating Leaks in Pipe Networks with a Simulation App
Sebastien Perrier of Echologics discusses a simulation application used to locate leaks in underground pipe networks in his keynote presentation at the COMSOL Conference 2016 Boston.
Hear the Sound of an Organ Pipe Design with a Simulation App
Did you know that apps can generate audio results, not just visual data? The Organ Pipe Designer investigates the parameters behind an organ pipe configuration, then plays the resulting sounds!
App: Design a Geothermal Heat Pump’s Heat Recovery System
The design and installation of a geothermal heat pump often involves many different configurations, which can be easily tested with a simulation app. See an example in action here.
Simulating Injection Mold Cooling
Behind the wheel of a car is not the ideal place to discover that the steering wheel is defective. That’s why special precautions are taken during the manufacturing process. The carefully controlled cooling of an injection mold ensures that whatever the product may be, its standards are up to par. Here, we use the Non-Isothermal Pipe Flow interface with the Heat Transfer in Solids interface to study the cooling path of an injection mold for a polyurethane car steering wheel.
Creating an App for Modeling Flow Control in a Pipe Network
We just launched a new app for you to download from the Application Library update. This app is a dedicated tool for modeling the flow and pressure distribution inside a network of connected pipes. Engineers in semiconductor processing could use a tool like this to test a given design and ensure it will meet specification before prototyping the physical device. Here, I’ll give you some background info and walk you through how this app works.
