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Did you know that golf balls were originally made out of wood?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.
Analyzing LED Bulb Designs with Heat Transfer Simulation
LED bulbs are billed as more energy efficient than traditional bulbs, but they are not 100% efficient in turning electricity into light, making thermal management a vital design consideration.
8 Uses of COMSOL Multiphysics® in the Biomedical Industry
Read about 8 real-world examples of how engineers and researchers in the biomedical industry are using simulation to advance their innovative designs.
3 Examples of Optimizing Loudspeaker Components
Whether in a home theater system, gym, or massive concert venue, loudspeakers need to perform optimally. 1 way to do so is by performing a shape or topology optimization study of its components.
Studying a 500-Million-Year-Old Dinner Party with CFD Simulation
From zebras to elephants to lions, Namibia is home to a variety of wildlife. However, this research team was on the lookout for the fossils of a 500-million-year-old organism.
New Method for Performing Topology Optimization of FSI Problems
Many topology optimization methods are only available for FSI problems within a purely academic scope. Enter the TOBS-GT algorithm for fluid-structure design…
Analyzing Tsunami Waves with an Established Benchmark Model
The 1993 Hokkaidō earthquake in Japan caused tsunami waves that reached massive runup heights — one recorded wave in Monai Valley even reached as high as 32 m (~104 ft)!
Why Do Pigeons Have Iridescent Feathers?
If you look at a pigeon a certain way, the feathers around their necks shine in bright hues of emerald and amethyst. As it turns out, a prehistoric animal exhibited a similar trait…
