The Growing Use of Simulation in the Biomedical Industry
From implants and stents to MRI and spinal cord stimulation, numerical modeling is paramount to biomedical device development. Learn more and hear from key players in this industry.
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.
Happy Birthday, Egon Orowan
Egon Orowan found that the theory of dislocations could be used to explain the plastic deformation of ductile materials. He also studied geological fracture, munitions production, and more.
Designing Cavity Filters for 5G Devices with Multiphysics Modeling
From radar and microwave ovens to particle accelerators, RF cavity filters are found in a variety of different application areas. Among them: 5G devices and infrastructure.
The Science Behind Cooking Caramel
Whether you’re adding it to brownies, crème brûlée, or an ice cream sundae, cooking caramel is a precarious task: One wrong move and it could burn and taste bitter or recrystallize and harden.
Modeling the Behavior of an Oldroyd-B Polymer
Have you ever noticed that when a certain force is applied to a viscoelastic fluid, the fluid starts to look like beads on a string? Here, we showcase an example that uses an Oldroyd-B polymer.
6 Examples of Simulation-Driven Loudspeaker Development
From headphones for virtual reality gaming to powerful transducers for hearing aids, here are 6 examples of multiphysics simulation being used to develop new and improved loudspeaker products.
