## Evaluating the Electrode Utilization of a Lithium-Ion Battery Pouch Cell

##### Bridget Paulus April 11, 2019

Large-format batteries are found in energy storage systems; electric, hybrid, and plug-in cars; unmanned vehicles; light-rail trains; and more. We discuss modeling a component of these batteries.

### Calculating the Heat Transfer Coefficient for Flat and Corrugated Plates

##### Yogashree Bharath April 10, 2019

What is the heat transfer coefficient, and how do you calculate it? This blog post includes a theoretical background and demonstration of 2 examples in COMSOL Multiphysics®.

### Happy Birthday, Charles Proteus Steinmetz

##### Emily Ediger April 9, 2019

Today’s engineering students benefit from Steinmetz’s work on alternating currents and magnetism. How much do you know about the man behind the law of hysteresis?

### Fine-Tuning the Design of Piezoelectric Transducers with Simulation

##### Mads Herring Jensen April 5, 2019

A variety of use cases and a variety of physics: Piezoelectric transducer designs need to account for electric currents, pressure acoustics, stress-strain, and acoustic-structure interaction.

### How to Synthesize the Radiation Pattern of an Antenna Array

##### Jiyoun Munn April 4, 2019

You can study and prototype a phased array antenna without analyzing the entire structure through a full 3D wave equation (saving time and computational costs) by using an antenna array factor.

### How to Simplify a Two-Port Device Model Using a Touchstone File

##### Jiyoun Munn April 3, 2019

Say you’re modeling a two-port device and want to reduce the computational resources involved. We demonstrate one way to do so, involving a Touchstone file…

### Modeling Heat Transfer in Thin Layers via Layered Material Technology

##### Claire Bost April 1, 2019

We answer some questions you may have about the Layered Material functionality in the COMSOL® software: What does it do? How do you update existing models? How do simulations benefit from it?

### A Calculated Victory: Karen Keskulla Uhlenbeck Wins 2019 Abel Prize

##### Brianne Christopher March 29, 2019

What inspires you about Karen Keskulla Uhlenbeck, the 2019 Abel Prize Laureate and first woman to win the award? Learn about her career and research as well as the history of the Abel Prize.

### RF Module Part Library: An Easier Way to Model RF Devices

##### Jiyoun Munn March 28, 2019

Sometimes, your models need to include connectors. Instead of spending time creating geometries for each connector, you can simply add them from the Part Library.

### Defying Gravity with a Realistic Acoustic Levitator Model

##### Thomas Forrister March 27, 2019

It’s not just science fiction: Objects really can levitate. 1 way this is possible is by using sound waves to lift and suspend particles midair. Simulation can broaden the use of this technology.

### Modeling Multi-Ply Materials with Composite Materials Technology

##### GuestEric Linvill March 26, 2019

In a follow-up to a previous blog post on paper mechanics modeling, Eric Linvill of Lightness by Design compares 3 methods of analysis for multi-ply materials such as paperboard.
