Have you ever noticed how water can flow through rocks and leave a trace of its passage by covering the surface with a patina, like white stripes? The whole process is quite complex but can roughly be explained by breaking it down into two coupled effects: gravity and chemical reactions. Gravity causes the water to infiltrate through discrete fractures (hard rocks) or pores (sedimentary rocks), until it charges the groundwater supply below to a point where excess water will surface […]

They say that an image is worth more than a thousand words, and I couldn’t agree more. In that vein, we’d like to show you our enthusiasm over the European COMSOL Conference held in Milan, Italy earlier in October, through a slideshow of pictures from the event. We already thanked you in advance for making this our most-registered for event of the year. Now we want to thank you again with this slideshow.

There are some special events that we particularly care about and put tons of work into here in COMSOL, and these are our annual conferences. The events keep on expanding and this year everything will be even bigger and better! The conference will be held in Boston, MA October 3-5, Milan, Italy October 10-12, and in Bangalore, India November 2-3. We are very excited about the high quality and large volume of abstracts submitted for the COMSOL conference so far.

Summer months tend to be a quiet period for corporate activities, but not for us. For one, our webinars are seeing a large attendance even during these months. One of our highest attended free webinars recently was one that we held with SAE International on July 31st about Multiphysics Simulation in Vehicle Applications.

When you work with multiphysics all day you tend to notice physics phenomena everywhere you go. For me, one such moment was when I was walking on the beach this past summer. I noticed that the sand appears whiter around a person’s feet than elsewhere. You may have noticed this too, and like I, wondered “why?” This phenomenon can be explained by the theory of poroelasticity.

During a recent Heat Transfer Simulations webinar we demonstrated some good examples using “everyday life” type scenarios. Heat transfer occurs in many situations indeed: potatoes cooking in the microwave, hot coffee in a cup, and on the beach, with solar radiation. And most of us have at some point boiled water to make pasta for dinner. Heat transfer is at work then too.
