Knowing the sun’s radiation and thermal effects is very important to designers within the building industry, especially in designing “green” buildings. Heat transfer also plays a vital role in designing outdoor devices in terms of maintaining temperatures in extreme hot or cold environments. To use the words of Nicolas Huc, project leader for the Heat Transfer Module development at COMSOL in France: “it makes a huge difference if you forget to take the sun’s radiation within account”.

I was just reading one of my favorite sites, phys.org, about the difficulties of working with nanostructures. In the world of batteries, you want to maximize charge, while minimizing volume and weight. This means that the nano-world is starting to take hold, but, as has been discovered with many other applications where nanotechnology is being applied, it is very difficult to control the material properties in this world.

I am an avid reader of The Economist and always enjoy their coverage of technical and scientific subjects. In their issue from late April, they ran a special insert on Manufacturing and Innovation, which was a great read. One of their articles was a report on 3D printing and how this is actually becoming an integral part of manufacturing in that the actual printing is mass producing parts and components.

The release of COMSOL 4.3 is a big deal. My colleagues have been working very hard on this release, and lately water cooler conversations have been less about sporting events and more about what’s coming in version 4.3, and when it will be ready. Many are saying that this is “our best release yet”. Now it’s finally time to unveil what the fuss around version 4.3 is all about — and we bring it to you first via the COMSOL […]
