About a month ago we had a webinar on CFD, and one of the demonstrated examples was the modeling of fluid flow from an inkjet. This technology has many applications and is a great example of how accurate CFD simulation is being used in the design process.

These days, RFID tags are used in many applications. Ranging from packing slips to ID badges, RFID tags are embedded into many different objects by businesses everywhere. Once tagged, these can be tracked to improve functions such as inventory management, security, manufacturing processes, and more. You can also implant an RFID tag into animals, such as cattle or pets, so that they can be found in case of theft or loss, for instance. Wild animals that are found far from […]

The “Gonzaga Room” at the COMSOL Conference in Milan was a pleasant setting for an interesting presentation. There, I saw Dejan Grabovickic present his paper titled: “Analysis of Super Imaging Properties of Spherical Geodesic Waveguide Using COMSOL Multiphysics”. His waveguide consisted of two copper spheres about the size of a soccer ball, one inside the other and separated by a very thin gap. I’m happy I attended this particular presentation, as it would later receive one of the Milan Conference […]

On October 10th, the COMSOL Conference transitioned over from the United States to Europe, and I followed along. The big news from our conference in Milan is that over 350 people turned out for the first day alone, and around 100 more over the following days. Something else that struck me was that the facilities for the European COMSOL Conference were quite spectacular. The hotel in Milan was of an antique style, with large paintings that deck the walls of […]

Oftentimes when you are working with devices with internal fluid flow, the imported CAD design represents the vessel material. The inside is plainly void. This may leave you clueless since it is inside where you want to create a volume mesh for the flow equations. How can you solve this meshing problem in COMSOL?

While the highlights from the first day of our conference in Boston were about the release of 4.3a, and the second day was arranged around three fantastic guest keynote speakers, the final conference day offered a view into the future — Physics Builder.

The release of COMSOL Multiphysics version 4.3a introduces the Fatigue Module to the world of multiphysics modeling. As the diagram below shows, the Fatigue Module is used to perform structural fatigue life computations for both strain-based and stressed-based fatigue. Since the release, I’ve come to realize that this has been a sought-after product for COMSOL users. But why should you simulate fatigue?

I thought that in the next couple of days I would share some of my impressions from the conference. With upwards of 330 attendees, with about as many papers and posters presented, and over 25 minicourses, there’s a lot to talk about.

Recently, Fanny blogged about spreadsheets and how they are used in engineering. She mentioned that they are great for collating material properties and other experimental results, and for then using these in COMSOL models. The simulation results from these models can in turn be compared to the original data, and help calibrate material properties and optimize the design. With the release of COMSOL Multiphysics 4.3a, COMSOL has now made it much easier to perform these tasks and extend your modeling […]
