Today, guest blogger and Certified Consultant Ionut Prodan of Boffin Solutions, LLC discusses using a hybrid approach to calculate fracture flux in thin structures. When modeling thin fractures within a 3D porous matrix, you can efficiently describe their pressure field by modeling them as 2D objects via the Fracture Flow interface. Significant fracture flux calculation issues, however, may arise for systems of practical interest, such as hydraulic fractures contained within unconventional reservoirs. See how a hybrid approach overcomes such difficulties.

Guest Linus Fagerberg February 24, 2016

Today, guest blogger Linus Fagerberg of Lightness by Design, a COMSOL Certified Consultant, shares how multiphysics simulation provides accuracy in automotive muffler design. The acoustic design of mufflers in the automotive industry has traditionally been performed by an iterative process where different alternatives are compared by experimental methods until a satisfactory design is found. Numerical simulation can drastically reduce a project’s time and expenses, while simultaneously increasing the performance of the muffler.

Guest Nagi Elabbasi February 10, 2016

Today, guest blogger and Certified Consultant Nagi Elabbasi of Veryst Engineering shares simulation research designed to optimize band gaps for phononic crystals. Phononic crystals are rather unique materials that can be engineered with a particular band gap. As the demand for these materials continues to grow, so does the interest in simulating them, specifically to optimize their band gaps. COMSOL Multiphysics, as we’ll show you here, can be used to perform such studies.
