Amphos 21 have long been experts within environmental consulting. In particular, they have been consulting for almost twenty years within nuclear and industrial waste management, the management of water resources and contaminated land, and energy optimization. It was therefore a pleasure to see that they had started using COMSOL Multiphysics for a number of their projects, and are now officially offering consultancy services for modeling multiphysics processes within these and similar industries.

Düsensauginfiltration (DSI) is a novel technique for lowering water levels at mining and construction sites while not actually having to transport the water away from these sites. This came to my attention at the latest COMSOL Conference in Stuttgart. There, Ph.D. student Yulan Jin and Assistant Professor Dr. Ekkehard Holzbecher from the Georg-August University in Göttingen, Germany was presenting their research into this groundwater lowering technique.

David Kan has previously blogged very well about the Pipe Flow Module, where he described the fundamentals behind this new product of ours. Now, you can see this module in action at a webinar run on July 19th. Check out the details and registration for the upcoming Pipe Flow Simulation Using COMSOL webinar.

Transformers were first commercially used in the late 1800’s, but they are still being investigated at their fundamental levels. One of the stories from our latest COMSOL News concerns ABB (who themselves have been around since the late 1800’s) and their research into these apparatuses.

I am pleased to announce that we have received 130 abstract submissions for the COMSOL Conference Boston! These have been sent off to our Program Committee for review and we’re looking forward to a great meeting with presentations of many different multiphysics applications. As the Program Committee Chair, it has been exhilarating to read how much is being done within the world of multiphysics modeling and simulations.

I know, I know… I should spend the weekend relaxing. But every place I visit offers me a variety of natural phenomena I wasn’t aware of and, as an engineer and a multiphysics enthusiast, I can’t help but sit in the sun jotting down a list of the physics involved – possible coupling mechanisms, boundary conditions, materials, and so on (we talked about stereotypes attached to engineer on our

During the last few months, we have been offering “lunch time tutorials” for users and others interested in multiphysics modeling. In these webinar-run tutorials, we choose an application and spend a bit of time looking at it, and how to model it in detail. We’ve already reported about an example that models a gate valve and now we are ready to offer an example related to pollution, namely that of a particle plume that spreads throughout a room.

I have just come back from a bit of a vacation and boy was it hot! Here, a large part of the US has been going through record high temperatures and most of my time was spent trying to keep cool. How nice then to mention a story about cooling.

This past May we held a brand new series of chemical engineering training courses in Burlington, MA. The series featured our new Electrodeposition and Corrosion courses. These courses were paired up with our Batteries & Fuel Cells and popular 2-Day Intensive Training courses. In short, it was a week-long electrochemical extravaganza. This fall these courses are returning to Burlington.

The end of July marks the beginning of a $20 million R&D project led by the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) to produce and process plutonium-238. The U.S. space program will be using the Pu-238 that is to be produced by ORNL as fuel for future deep-space missions.
