University of Michigan Refines Solar Car Design

Phil Kinnane January 13, 2012

I have just read a cool article about the University of Michigan’s solar car. Back when I was a young and hopeful engineering student in Australia , the World Solar Challenge really sparked my imagination. This is the race from the top of Australia (Darwin) to the bottom (Adelaide) across the desert where the cars are powered by solar energy, which is basically captured by solar cells on the car roofs.

The release of Version 4.2a was an exciting event for us at COMSOL. I had the opportunity to see a preview of new products and the big one for me was the Particle Tracing Module. Many of our customers and colleagues in the simulation industry had been requesting this for quite some time. I must admit that I thought it was just because they wanted a different type of postprocessing feature; another way of looking at streamlines.

Alla har vi väl velat bli osynliga vid ett eller annat tillfälle. Som Dagens Nyheter och Ny Teknik nyligen rapporterade om har vi på COMSOL dragit vårt strå till stacken. Forskare använder COMSOL Multiphysics för att simulera och designa avancerade metamaterial. Redan idag finns det högeffektiva antenner och i framtiden går det kanske att skapa akustiska mantlar, båtskrov med lägre vattenmotstånd eller osynlighetsmantlar. Det lär nog dröja ett tag innan en hel människa försvinner in i mörkret bakom en osynlighetsmantel […]

The latest issue of Building Simulation, Volume 4, Number 1 / March 2011 , reports on how multiphysics modeling and simulation is being applied to develop and design buildings. Titled “Special issue: Multiphysics Modeling and Its Application in Buildings” this journal features seven papers spanning a variety of application areas. In each paper COMSOL Multiphysics is being used to model the complex processes encountered in building simulation. The Journal is available online and is published by Tsinghua University Press, co-published […]

COMSOL Multiphysics offers direct access to mathematical models utilized in its interfaces and allows users to customize their own theoretical model within COMSOL with unparalleled ease. Here are three video tutorials on how users can add their own Partial Differential Equations (PDEs) within the COMSOL Multiphysics interface.

Competition sponsored by PTC® (www.ptc.com), COMSOL (www.comsol.com), and Tech Briefs Media (www.techbriefsmedia.com) attracts nearly 1,000 innovative product ideas from engineers and students in 51 countries. New York, NY – A new invention could help millions of manual wheelchair users increase their mobility while decreasing upper body, repetitive stress injuries. Many who suffer from muscle pain, torn rotator cuffs, joint degeneration, and carpal tunnel syndrome due to muscle overuse will benefit from the Rowheel Wheelchair Propulsion System. This innovative design uses […]

In this Joule heating effects problem we will demonstrate how to model and simulate the heating of a fuse in a circuit board using the new COMSOL Multiphysics version 4. We will solve how hot a fuse gets in the circuit board when high voltage and current is passed through the fuse.
