Comparing Static and Dynamic Wall Heat Exchangers with Simulation

February 27, 2018

We compare the performance and efficiency of static and dynamic compact wall heat exchanger designs using fluid-structure interaction.

Optimizing the Interference Fit Between 2 Pipes with Structural Analyses

February 15, 2018

The interference fit between 2 pipes can’t be too tight or too loose. Like the porridge in the “Goldilocks and the Three Bears” story, it has to be just right.

Simulating Natural Convection in Air with COMSOL Multiphysics®

February 7, 2018

From small electronic components to large buildings, natural convection is a transport phenomena found in engineering disciplines of all sizes. Here’s an example of natural convection in air.

Simulating Extraordinary Optical Transmission at Terahertz Frequencies

October 20, 2017

One potential approach to improving medical imaging, quality assurance, and other terahertz applications is extraordinary optical transmission, a process that can be studied with RF simulation.

Studying the Thermal Performance of Phase Change Materials

September 18, 2017

Certain building materials, like plaster, are enhanced with phase change materials (PCMs) to assist in keeping buildings cool in the summer and warm in the winter. But how effective are they?

Simulating the Thermocompression Bonding of an Underfill Adhesive

August 29, 2017

Underfill adhesives are often used in microelectronics to hold different components together. Simulate the thermocompression bonding process of such an adhesive to ensure its effectiveness.
