What Formulation Should I Use for Particle Tracing in Fluids?

December 4, 2020

The COMSOL® software gives you 4 equation formulation options when modeling particle tracing in fluids: Newtonian; Newtonian, first order; Newtonian, ignore inertial terms; and Massless.

Modeling Droplet Flow in an Open Space with COMSOL Multiphysics®

November 23, 2020

If you are jogging six feet apart from someone else, should you both be wearing masks? Simulation was used to analyze the motion of particles between two runners in an open space to find answers.

Designing Inductors with a Simulation App at Bombardier Transportation

November 20, 2020

Every day, 500 million passengers in 200 cities and 60 countries ride a train featuring Bombardier Transportation products. See how apps help speed up the design process for a train component…

How Does This Lip Gloss Appear to Defy Gravity?

September 10, 2020

We attempt to explain a mysterious, gravity-defying phenomenon involving a viral video, dielectric materials, electrostatics, and lip gloss.

Optimizing an NIV Mask Design with Multiphysics Simulation

August 13, 2020

NIV masks offer a form of noninvasive monitoring and ventilation for COVID-19 patients, which lessens the need for ventilators and other mechanical respirators.

Exploring the 4 Basic Modes of Electrophoresis

August 6, 2020

Zone electrophoresis, moving-boundary electrophoresis, isotachophoresis, and isoelectric focusing. In most cases, the physics of new electrophoretic methods can be related back to these 4 modes.

Introducing the Porous Media Flow Module

June 11, 2020

From multiphase transport and non-Darcian flow to local thermal equilibrium and nonequilibrium, we discuss the advanced porous media flow modeling you can do with the Porous Media Flow Module.

Modeling Heat Transfer in Thin Layers via Layered Material Technology

May 15, 2020

We answer some questions you may have about the Layered Material functionality in the COMSOL® software: What does it do? How do you update existing models? How do simulations benefit from it?
