Nagi Elabbasi | August 8, 2014

Today, we invite guest blogger Nagi Elabbasi of Veryst Engineering to share the work they performed on simulating wear in COMSOL Multiphysics. Using COMSOL Multiphysics, we implemented a wear model and validated it by simulating a pin-on-disc wear test. We then used the model to predict wear in an automotive disc brake problem. The results we found showed good agreement with published wear data.

Modular orthopedic devices, common in replacement joints, allow surgeons to tailor the size, material, and design of an implant directly to a patient’s needs. This flexibility and customization is counterbalanced, however, by a need for the implant components to fit together correctly. With parts that are not ideally matched, micro-motions and stresses on mismatched surfaces can cause fretting fatigue and corrosion. Researchers at Continuum Blue Ltd. have assessed changes to femoral implant designs to quantify and prevent this damage.

We have the pleasure of introducing guest blogger, Mark Yeoman of Continuum Blue, who showcases what they can do for clients in the electromechanical brake field. Electromechanical brakes come in various designs, including single to multiple friction-face systems, power-off and power-on types, and those that include permanent magnets. With so many options, how do engineers make the right design choices for their application? With COMSOL Multiphysics, this can easily be done. Here, I will show you how.

According to AMPHOS 21, a COMSOL Certified Consultant, one of the proposed solutions to releasing carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere is to store the CO2 in geological formations, a technique referred to as carbon dioxide sequestration. This notion led the engineers at AMPHOS 21 to study the physical and chemical processes that occur during the injection of the gas into earth’s subsurface.

Today, we invite guest blogger Nagi Elabbasi of Veryst Engineering to share a modeling example of immersed beams. When thin structures such as beams, plates, or shells are immersed in a fluid, their natural frequencies are reduced. The fluid also affects their mode shapes and is a source of damping. This phenomenon affects structures across a wide range of industries and sizes, from micro-scale structures (e.g. MEMS actuators) to larger structures (e.g. ships).

Jorge Molinero | February 18, 2014

Today, we are pleased to introduce a new guest author, Jorge Molinero of Amphos 21, a COMSOL Certified Consultant, who blogs about their new iCP technology. Along with several other parties, we at Amphos 21 have launched iMaGe, a multiphysics and geochemistry interfacing platform. The platform’s first product, iCP, connects COMSOL and PHREEQC, enabling the modeling of coupled Thermo-Hydro-Mechanical-Chemical phenomena.

Jeff Crompton | January 20, 2014

Today we have the pleasure of introducing Jeff Crompton, a guest author from AltaSim Technologies, who will discuss ceramic matrix composites and how to accurately analyze the production of such an advanced material. Ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) are fast becoming popular in many industries due to their ability to withstand high temperatures, corrosion, and wear better than metal components. They are being used in space applications, burners and combustion chambers, gas turbines, brake discs, and slide bearings. The manufacture of […]

The mining industry pre-dates sophisticated simulation software and the computers it runs on by thousands of years. As an essential modern industry, however, the technical and analytical capabilities offered by AMPHOS 21, a COMSOL Certified Consultant, are critical for both understanding and optimizing mine operations. Recently, we sponsored a webinar together with NASA Tech Briefs on “Mining and Hydrogeology: Porous Media Flow Simulations with COMSOL”, featuring environmental consultants Jorge Molinero and Elena Abarca from AMPHOS 21. Here are some of […]
