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.

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.

I had previously blogged about Thermal Cloaking, which uses layers of aluminum and paper to create an anisotropic structure and cloak a desired object. This differs from the “traditional” type of cloaking, of light and electromagnetic waves, which make use of metamaterials or layered structures that impose a negative refractive index to make the cloaked object appear transparent.
