Strategies to Counter Small Automatic Time Steps

March 16, 2020

When solving a model, you may encounter a varying time step and discretization order, or NLfail or Tfail could be greater than 0. Use these strategies to improve the efficiency of the simulation.

March 12, 2020

You can conveniently find a selection of COMSOL models that include external verification references in a single place: the COMSOL Verification and Validation Models page.

Material Characterization by Means of Simulation

March 10, 2020

Carbon-based materials, such as synthetic specialty graphites, are found in many industries, including solar, semiconductor, car manufacturing, ceramics, and metallurgy.

Simulating the Carburization and Quenching of a Steel Gear

March 9, 2020

Gears are typically carburized and quenched to improve their fatigue durability and wear resistance. Simulation can help determine how these processes affect the gear’s residual stress state.

Happy Birthday, Olga Ladyzhenskaya

March 7, 2020

Olga Ladyzhenskaya wasn’t one to shy away from a challenge. In fact, through her research, she proved the convergence of a finite difference method for the Navier–Stokes equations.

Thermal Equilibrium and Nonequilibrium Heat Transfer in Porous Media

March 3, 2020

Heat transfer in porous media can occur under thermal equilibrium, such as a rock consisting of different minerals or trapped fluids, or nonequilibrium, like a thermal energy storage (TES) unit.
