Investigating Glacier Motion with Viscoelastic Ice Simulations
Researchers at the Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI) use viscoelastic ice simulations to study the occurrence of crevasses in glaciers and iceberg calving. Learn how here.
Creating Schlieren-Type Visualizations in COMSOL Multiphysics®
Did you know that Schlieren imaging might predate written history? Here, we explore this ancient imaging technique with CFD modeling.
Pasta alla Simulazione: Modeling an Extruder in COMSOL®
On an industrial scale, extruders mix and knead raw pasta dough. Avoid issues with looks, taste, and safety by modeling the extrusion process.
Why Do Golf Balls Have Dimples?
Why do golf balls have dimples? Can I model a golf ball with COMSOL Multiphysics? Can I use simulation to optimize my shot and make a par? Find answers to these questions and more…
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.
Fine-Tuning an HVAC System Design with Simulation
Do you find your office too hot, too cold, or just right? Using simulation, HVAC system engineers can assess indoor climate conditions and ensure maximum comfort among a building’s occupants.
How to Compute Residence Time in Flow Models with COMSOL®
You can compute residence time in flow problems using the Particle Tracing Module. Get the details in this blog post.
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.
