IEEE Spectrum’s Insert Cover Story Optimizes Electronics Cooling

Phil Kinnane June 6, 2012

The June issue of IEEE Spectrum included an insert focused on Multiphysics Simulation. This included a feature on cooling in hybrid cars, articles about metamaterials, the smart power grid, as well as biomedical applications.

There are many exciting new features in the Particle Tracing Module for COMSOL Multiphysics version 4.3. The secondary particle emission feature is particularly fascinating. “This new option for the Wall Condition allows you to model filter multipliers and multipactors, which were previously very difficult to model”, says Dan Smith, Development Team Leader at COMSOL. A mathematical expression, like a logical expression containing the particle energy for instance, can be used to determine the number of secondary particles to be released. […]

COMSOL News is now available in print and electronically, and you can request your copy of the multiphysics simulation magazine here. One of the great stories concerns a process engineer at Ruukki Metals in Finland, Mika Judin, who not only uses COMSOL to model and optimize his process, but lets the operators use the simulation too.

Knowing the sun’s radiation and thermal effects is very important to designers within the building industry, especially in designing “green” buildings. Heat transfer also plays a vital role in designing outdoor devices in terms of maintaining temperatures in extreme hot or cold environments. To use the words of Nicolas Huc, project leader for the Heat Transfer Module development at COMSOL in France: “it makes a huge difference if you forget to take the sun’s radiation into account.”

It’s been fun working with the next release. One of the great new features will be in the Particle Tracing Module and will allow particles to interact with each other, and not only with the macroscopic field they find themselves in. It also produces some pretty cool vids.

One of the things I have noticed from the FEM vs FVM debate is that when you want to couple other physics to fluid flow, then FEM is the best method to do this with. It’s fitting then that my colleague in our Palo Alto office, John Dunec, ran a webinar this week on Multiphysics Flow Simulations with COMSOL.

The release of Version 4.2a was an exciting event for us at COMSOL. I had the opportunity to see a preview of new products and the big one for me was the Particle Tracing Module. Many of our customers and colleagues in the simulation industry had been requesting this for quite some time. I must admit that I thought it was just because they wanted a different type of postprocessing feature; another way of looking at streamlines.
