COMSOL has been running webinars together with our media partners for a few years now. This great technology has allowed us and them to showcase some interesting research and modeling applications, usually focused around multiphysics, and bring it directly to the engineer’s computer screen. Now a new partner has come on board, and we are thrilled to be collaborating with Laser Focus World. To kick this off, we will run a webinar on multiphysics and what it actually is, particularly […]

As an engineer researching and designing new products you really need to consider all aspects of the environment it is going to work within. Most of the time it won’t be enough to examine a single situation the product may encounter, because in nature there is always a combination of physical effects taking place — multiphysics.

Driving to work today I was filled with inspiration due to a radio report of the inspiring moment of the landing of the Curiosity on Mars. The reporter had concentrated on the leader of the rover’s entry, descent and landing engineering team, Adam Steltzner, and the star of the moment. The quote that hit me while I waited at the traffic light was “The thing that engineering and physics gave me was, there’s a right answer.” The guy had said […]

Did you hear that the University of Michigan’s team won the American Solar Challenge a couple of weeks ago? Back in January of this year, I blogged about how the University of Michigan team refined their solar car design and now it’s great to see them come in first in the Solar Challenge. They finished the eight-day trip ten hours ahead of the runner-up, Iowa State. This win resonates with us at COMSOL as well actually, because they used COMSOL […]

The most common type of aortic aneurysms is that which occurs in the abdominal region. When a person experiences an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA), his or her abdominal aorta is dilated to the extent that its diameter is increased by over 50%. With symptoms lacking a sense of urgency (we’ve all ignored stomach pains before), if left untreated an AAA may rupture — whereon the victim’s life is on the line. An Intra-Luminal Thrombus is typically involved in AAAs, but […]
