How to Include Geometry Surfaces with Solution Plots

May 26, 2014

When you have solved a model, you want to visualize your results in the best way possible. Today, we will explain how to include geometry surfaces with your solution plots, by way of an RF modeling example.

Geothermal Energy: Using the Earth to Heat and Cool Buildings

May 23, 2014

The use of geothermal heat for building climatization is a cost-effective and sustainable method. In part three of our Geothermal Energy series, we will have a closer look at shallow tubing heat collectors. An accurate prediction of their thermal performance, considering both the piping layout and local thermal properties, turns out to be an appropriate job for the Pipe Flow Module.

Intro to Corrosion Modeling for the Oil and Gas Industry

May 22, 2014

If you work in the oil and gas industry dealing with offshore drilling, corrosion is your worst enemy. A corroded oil platform is a dangerous platform and it can cost you a lot — in both lives and money. To avoid such a dark fate, you need to safeguard the steel structure from corrosion via a protection system, such as the cathodic protection process shown here.

Quick Intro to Modeling RF and Microwave Heating

May 20, 2014

We like to feature a certain waveguide model in our RF and microwave heating webinars because it illustrates the concept in a way that is easy to understand. Here it is again, serving as a quick intro to modeling RF and microwave heating.

Simulating the Focusing Effect of Magnetic Quadrupoles

May 19, 2014

If you walked into a particle or nuclear physics center, like the world-renowned CERN, you may come across a magnetic quadrupole lens (after security clearance, I would imagine). Here, we’re going to discuss what magnetic quadrupole lenses are and study the focusing effect three consecutive quadrupole assemblies have on B5+ ions traveling through such a lens.

Powerful Packaging for Electronics in Extreme Environments

May 16, 2014

The power electronics industry is responsible for products used by billions of people: smartphones, televisions, certain car parts, and even components in motors and household objects. With such a diverse array of applications, many design requirements are considered during the making of these products, including power and energy density, cost, and customer safety. Arkansas Power Electronics International (APEI), a USA-based company, is refining designs for power packaging to control thermal management in power electronics devices, increase efficiency, and lower cost.

Solving TEAM Problem 7 with the AC/DC Module

May 15, 2014

Have you been looking for software that can solve the Testing Electromagnetic Analysis Methods (TEAM) Problem 7? We solved the problem with COMSOL Multiphysics and the AC/DC Module. Here are the results.

Best Practice for Working with Model M-Files

May 14, 2014

When developing models in COMSOL Multiphysics® software, it is common to come across tasks that have to be carried out repeatedly. This three-part blog series will show you how repetitive tasks can be efficiently achieved using model M-files and LiveLink™ for MATLAB®.
