With its growing use in numerous applications, the demand for graphene has steadily increased over the years. This heightened interest has prompted new research behind the methods for synthesizing graphene — one of which is chemical vapor deposition. See how one research team used modeling to analyze and enhance the CVD graphene growth mechanism.

Around this time last year, we introduced a new ribbon user interface to COMSOL Multiphysics. Now, with version 5.0, we are introducing many improvements that make COMSOL Multiphysics more intuitive to use. Updates include a change in color scheme, additional multiphysics interfaces, a materials tab, global materials, and Material Sweeps and Function Sweeps.

In addition to the general Solid Mechanics interface, the Structural Mechanics Module consists of specialized interfaces: Shell, Plate, and Membrane for the modeling of thin structures; and Beam and Truss for modeling slender structures. An engineering structure that has a mix of solid, thin, and slender components can be modeled by combining these physics interfaces with each other. Here, we will explore the options for coupling the structural mechanics interfaces by using examples from the Model Library.

Probably the most common reactor in the chemical industry is the packed bed reactor. This reactor is used in chemical synthesis and for effluent treatment and catalytic combustion. Oftentimes, heterogeneous catalysis requires packed beds. A common design is a cylindrical column filled with catalyst pellets. The pellets can be contained within supporting structures, like tubes or channels, or packed in a single compartment in the column. The latter is called dumped packing.

Last month, my colleague Ruud described some of the most effective ways to use arrow plots in your COMSOL Multiphysics simulation results. In this next installment of the postprocessing series, I’ll continue with slice plots, which are an easy way to visualize physics behavior on many different parts of your model.
