Add a Full State-Space Feedback Controller to a Control System Model
Get a brief overview of full state feedback, learn how to use the State-Space Controller add-in, and get a demonstration of implementing the add-in using a mass-spring-damper system example.
Fractals, Noise, and State Variables
Ever notice how the leaves of a fern seem to show a self-repeating pattern? Fractals are objects that exhibit some form of self-similarity at different scales. Learn how to model them here.
The North Pole Models Product Distribution Challenges for the Holidays
Today, a guest blogger from the North Pole discusses using simulation to find out if his boss will be able to fit down all of the chimneys this holiday season.
Keynote Video: Rapid Prototyping for Sonar Systems
Engineers at Northrop Grumman follow a 4-part rapid prototyping design phase: Design, manufacturing a prototype, testing and design verification, and manufacturing of the final design.
How to Run COMSOL Multiphysics® from the Command Line
Did you know that you can run repeated variations of the same COMSOL Multiphysics® model file from the command line — and automatically export data?
Accelerating Model Convergence with Symbolic Differentiation
Whenever you set up and solve a nonlinear problem in COMSOL Multiphysics, a symbolic differentiation engine is automatically used to ensure high robustness and accelerate model convergence.
Implementing a Damage Evolution Law for a Hyperelastic Material
By implementing a physically motivated damage evolution law for a hyperelastic material, you can incorporate material softening, creep, and stabilization of hysteresis curves during cycling.
Estimating Hyperelastic Material Parameters via a Lap Joint Shear Test
For rubber, polymers, and biological tissue, the relationship between stress and strain is nonlinear, even at small loads. The lap joint shear test can be used to determine material properties.
