Simulation Applications Enable Digitalization at ABB Traction Motors

February 26, 2019

Here’s a real-world example of optimizing R&D processes with COMSOL Server™: At ABB Traction Motors, engineers use simulation applications to analyze CFD and heat in electric motor designs.

Keynote Video: Optimizing Cable Systems via Simulation

January 28, 2019

The length of cable for a mode of transportation depends on the amount of passengers, so a car uses ~5 km of cable and a cruise ship uses ~5000 km. Learn more about cable system design here.

Keynote Video: EPFL Uses Simulation to Design a Hyperloop Pod

January 22, 2019

The EPFLoop team used multiphysics simulation to design the aeroshell, pressure vessel, and braking system of their hyperloop pod for the SpaceX 2018 competition. Get an inside look here.

Simulating Fluid-Structure Interaction in a Ball Check Valve

January 21, 2019

Simulate FSI in a ball check valve to find the flow rate, fluid pressure, and fluid velocity. The COMSOL® software includes a predefined multiphysics coupling that makes it simple.

2 Mesh Adaptation Methods: Enabling More Efficient Computations

January 16, 2019

Why adapt your mesh? For one thing, it helps you solve your computational problems more efficiently. Here, we show you 2 methods for adapting your mesh in COMSOL Multiphysics®.

Evaluating a Fire-Resistant Overpack for Nuclear Waste

December 26, 2018

Confinement system overpacks are used to safely store radioactive waste. Sogin uses heat transfer modeling to design safe and reliable overpacks that are resistant to fire.

Simulating Multiphase Flow in Porous Media with a Low Permeable Lens

December 13, 2018

Modeling phase transport helps you study the multiphase flow through a porous medium (such as groundwater through soil).

Studying Shock Wave Phenomena with a Shock Tube Application

December 10, 2018

Shock waves used to be a theoretical problem only. Then, shock tubes enabled experimentation, but it was costly and inefficient. Enter numerical modeling applications.
