So far users of COMSOL Multiphysics have fared pretty well in the Create the Future contest. For example, last year’s Grand Prize was awarded to Monika Weber and researchers with Yale University, CT, for their “αScreen Fast and Cheap Bacteria Detection”. This sensor can help cheaply detect bacteria in food fast and eliminate the risk of infection and spreading food-borne diseases.

The manager of our Palo Alto Office, John Dunec, has been running some lunch tutorials that show the building of models. His latest one, which was presented last Tuesday, showed how flow in a building can be modeled.

One project that has been really exciting to work with is a resource CD for our users and prospects. Called the Chemical Showcase, we will soon be offering this to engineers and scientists who are interested in modeling, and want to apply this to chemical engineering, battery, fuel cell, reactor and electrochemical applications. One of the fun things about producing the Showcase was recording this nifty chemical engineering video…

The COMSOL News production continues and we’re almost done with sending all the User Stories to layout. We’ve also started to get some coming back, and they’re beginning to look great. One of them uses the new Particle Tracing Module that I blogged about recently, giving you a glimpse of what’s coming for the next release of COMSOL Multiphysics.

Multiphysics simulation means breakthroughs and increased productivity. It comes as no surprise then that within the COMSOL user community (that’s you!) amazing new products are being launched at a higher pace than ever before. In recognition of this fact and in celebration of product innovation in general, we have joined forces with Nordson EFD and the Tech Briefs Media Group as principal sponsors of the Create the Future Design Contest 2012.

We first noticed that COMSOL was being used to model cloaking when an article on BBC’s website was brought to our attention. It related to a paper published by a famous scientist, Sir John Pendry, in Science. In it, he and his two co-authors, David Smith and David Schurig at Duke University, NC, laid out the theory for the cloaking of light and postulated that “a simple demonstration model that could work for radar might be possible within 18 months’ […]

We at COMSOL are diligent with testing all parts of the modeling and simulation experience. Our partners, AMD, are helpful in this procedure by providing their latest graphics technology for us to certify. This latest addition has been the AMD FirePro™ V3900 graphics card, a powerful entry-level accelerator card for projects ranging from low to moderate complexity. Its great feature is that it can support up to five display devices.

It’s been fun working with the next release. One of the great new features will be in the Particle Tracing Module and will allow particles to interact with each other, and not only with the macroscopic field they find themselves in. It also produces some pretty cool vids.

Wind turbines are an expensive investment and once they’re up, they’re up. An article from last year’s COMSOL News points to how modeling can also help in remedying problems, if it’s too late to have built the perfect design from the beginning. With wind turbines, noise is of course the problem.
