Optimizing PID Controller Performance with COMSOL Multiphysics®

June 11, 2019

PID controllers involve three components that must work together simultaneously, and it can be challenging to get each of them just right. That’s where process control simulation comes in.

4 Methods to Account for Radiation in Participating Media

May 22, 2019

The discrete ordinates method, P1 approximation, Rosseland approximation, or the Beer–Lambert law: Which should you use to analyze heat transfer in participating media?

Speeding Up DNA Separation in a Microchannel via Simulation

May 9, 2019

DNA separation takes a long time using traditional methods. Now, researchers from the Missouri University of Science and Technology have found a faster way to get the job done.

Heat Transfer with Radiation in Participating Media and the Discrete Ordinates Method

May 8, 2019

Here’s your complete guide to the discrete ordinates method, quadrature sets, and how to model the interaction between radiation and a participating or absorbing medium.

Comparing Optimization Methods for a Heat Sink Design for 3D Printing

April 18, 2019

When designing a heat sink, is it better to use parametric or topology optimization? When manufacturing said design, does 3D printing produce the best result, or a conventional method?

Calculating the Heat Transfer Coefficient for Flat and Corrugated Plates

April 10, 2019

What is the heat transfer coefficient, and how do you calculate it? This blog post includes a theoretical background and demonstration of 2 examples in COMSOL Multiphysics®.

Modeling Heat Transfer in Thin Layers via Layered Material Technology

April 1, 2019

We answer some questions you may have about the Layered Material functionality in the COMSOL® software: What does it do? How do you update existing models? How do simulations benefit from it?
