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
We’ve talked a lot on the blog about the different types of simulation apps that you can build. But did you know that you can create an app that plays sounds? The Organ Pipe Designer allows users to investigate the parameters behind an organ pipe configuration and then play the resulting sounds to really see — and hear — a design in action. Let’s learn more about the physics behind our underlying model and its transformation into an easy-to-use app.
App: Design a Geothermal Heat Pump’s Heat Recovery System
Geothermal heat pumps offer an environmentally friendly option for heating modern, well-insulated homes. Oftentimes, many configurations are explored before deciding on the most effective ground heat recovery system. Simulation tools like COMSOL Multiphysics can be used to analyze different iterations to ensure an optimal final design. With the introduction of easy-to-use simulation apps, such modifications no longer require the skills of a simulation expert. Instead, colleagues can investigate design changes, run their own simulations, and evaluate results.
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.
