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Did you know that golf balls were originally made out of wood?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.
The History and Science Behind Vinyl Records
As vinyl records explode in popularity, we take a look back at the history of records, as well as the interesting science behind how they are produced — and how they play music.
Curve Fitting of Solution Data in COMSOL Multiphysics®
We discuss curve fitting of continuous solution data, the concept of orthogonality, and how to fit solution data to a set of orthogonal functions for a simple and convenient postprocessing operation.
Fully Coupled Hydromechanical Modeling of Fractured Media
Dr. Qinghua Lei of ETH Zürich demonstrates a novel method for modeling fully coupled hydromechanical processes in fractured media with 2 examples: fluid injection and underground excavation.
Simulating Wind Load on a Sports Car’s Side Door and Mirror
Vroom vroom: In this blog post, we use large eddy simulation (LES) and structural analysis to analyze wind loads and airflow on the door and side mirror of a sports car driving at high speeds.
What Is the Difference Between Plane Stress and Plane Strain?
We go over the formulations and constitutive models that you can use to study plane stress, plane strain, and generalized plane strain in your solid mechanics problems.
Modeling Thermomechanical Fatigue in COMSOL Multiphysics®
You can analyze thermomechanical fatigue in COMSOL Multiphysics® using experimental data from fatigue testing and material parameters from literature. A guest blogger demonstrates…
Modeling Parts Without Constraints in Your Structural Analyses
When building a solid mechanics model, there may be parts with prescribed loads but no constraints that can be reasonably applied. Learn different approaches and considerations for this scenario.
