What Is the Best Way to Analyze Fuel Tank Vibration?

August 4, 2020

In a traditional approach for modeling a fuel tank, the fluid mass is dispersed through the tank’s wetted surface. A multiphysics method specifically models the acoustic pressure in the fluid.

How to Predict the Fatigue Life of Welds

February 20, 2020

After an introduction to the welding process and weld geometries, we compare the nominal stress method, notch stress method, and hot spot stress methods for predicting the fatigue life of welds.

Making Structures Stronger by Removing Material

February 18, 2020

To make a structure stronger, sometimes you have to take material away instead of adding more. We go over concepts like fillets, load paths, and displacement control to demonstrate this concept.

Optimizing Composite Wheel Rim Designs with COMSOL Multiphysics®

February 12, 2020

Composite wheel rims are stronger and lighter than their conventional steel and aluminum counterparts. Plus, they offer better acceleration, braking, and cornering on the road.

How to Perform a Sensitivity Analysis in COMSOL Multiphysics®

February 6, 2020

How do the parameters of your design affect its performance? Understanding this relationship is a valuable part of the design process. By performing a sensitivity analysis, you can do just that.

How to Use the Load Plots in Structural Analyses

December 4, 2019

You can use the load plots available in the COMSOL® software to get the best possible visualization of the loads acting on your structural mechanics models in various situations.

Evaluating Stress and Thermal Expansion in a Portal Crane

November 25, 2019

As extreme heat waves increase in frequency, it is important to consider thermal expansion when designing bridges. With COMSOL Multiphysics®, you can.

Optimizing Lubricated Systems with Numerical Simulation

July 11, 2019

Experts at SIMTEC designed a lubricated mechanical contact using numerical modeling and built an application for optimizing the use of lubrication in rolling and sliding bearings.
