Job Sequences to Save Data After Solving a Model

These examples demonstrate how to use a job sequence to perform a programmatic sequence of operations, including solving; saving the model to file; and generating and exporting plot groups, results, and images. In the blog post associated with these files, "How to Use Job Sequences to ... Read More

Discrete Ordinates Quadrature Sets for Radiation in Absorbing Medium

This model is used on "Heat Transfer with Radiation in Participating Media and the Discrete Ordinates Method" to compare quadrature sets used in the method of discrete ordinates. The reference analytical solution of incident irradiation is obtained with 256 discrete directions. Errors in ... Read More

Isoelectric Separation

This example applies the Electrophoretic Transport and Laminar Flow interfaces to model isoelectric separation in a free-flow electrophoresis device. A stream containing six different ionic species is shown to be divided into pure component streams by means of migrative transport in an ... Read More

Geometric Parameter Optimization of a Tuning Fork

This model computes the fundamental eigenfrequency and eigenmode for a tuning fork that is synchronized from SolidWorks via the LiveLink interface. The length of the fork is then optimized so that the tuning fork sounds the note A, 440 Hz. Read More

MOSCAP 1D Small Signal

The metal-silicon-oxide (MOS) structure is the fundamental building block for many silicon planar devices. Its capacitance measurements provide a wealth of insight into the working principles of such devices. This tutorial constructs a simple 1D model of a MOS capacitor (MOSCAP). Both ... Read More

Modeling a Radial Cam Based Valve Opening Mechanism

In this example, a spring-loaded valve-opening mechanism consisting of a rocker arm and a radial cam is studied. All of the system components are modeled as rigid and are connected through prismatic, hinge, and slot joints. The cam-follower connection as well as other joint connections ... Read More

Ear-Canal Simulator Optimization

In this tutorial the geometry of an occluded ear-canal simulator is optimized to match the acoustic response of a given ear. The target data in this model stems from a simulation of an ear canal, but it can also be based on measurements, or a response specified by a standard. Read More

Buoyancy–driven μPCR for DNA Amplification

Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is one of the most effective methods in molecular biology, medical diagnostics, and biochemical engineering in amplifying a specific sequence of DNA. There has been a great interest in developing portable PCR-based lab-on-a-chip systems for point-of-care ... Read More

Tutorial model for Local Thermal Non-Equilibrium interface

This tutorial model shows how to use the Local Thermal Non-Equilibrium interface. Read More

Electric Sensor Batch Sweep

This example shows how to image the interior permittivity of a box by applying a potential difference on the boundaries of the box. The result is a surface charge density that depends on the permittivity of the medium inside the box. Read about this tutorial model in our blog post "The ... Read More
