Engineers at Amphos 21 tested a new solution for different oil spill scenarios, hydrophobic meshes, with numerical simulation. The meshes are made of steel or copper and a hydrophobic polymer coating that filters the oil from the water. Using COMSOL Multiphysics® software, they modeled ... Read More
The Norwegian Technical Institute (NGI) is an international center for research and consulting that investigates the generation of building vibration due to infrasound. They aim to recommend countermeasures to mitigate low-frequency sound waves at levels of sensitivity, intrusion, and ... Read More
Gas Technology Institute (GTI), a leader in natural gas research, development, and training, investigated industry standards for squeeze-off length in gas pipelines to make pipes more accessible. Squeeze-off is a procedure that involves compressing a pipe to completely stop the flow of ... Read More
Historically, difficulties in modeling and predicting combustion instability have led engineers to costly physical testing, or even to scrap the system entirely. Sean Fischbach and the research team at NASA used the COMSOL Multiphysics® software to model chamber gas dynamics and the ... Read More
Alexander V. Kildishev, associate professor of electrical and computer engineering, is leading computational nanophotonics efforts at Birck Nanotechnology Center, Purdue University, and combining graphene with plasmonics to bring the material closer to practical optoelectronics ... Read More
FUJIFILM Dimatix, a top producer of commercial inkjet printheads, uses multiphysics simulation to develop MEMS actuators, which their newest ink deposition projects are based on. Chris Menzel, a principal scientist on the research team at FUJIFILM Dimatix, studies printhead actuation to ... Read More
HeatSinkSim is a simulation app created by the specialists at AltaSim Technologies that can help optimize heat sink designs for power electronics. This app was developed with the Application Builder in the COMSOL Multiphysics® software and deployed by installing COMSOL Server™ on a ... Read More
Chairs must meet quality standards, which requires lengthy and costly testing.
