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.

Building Roller Chain Geometries in the Multibody Dynamics Module

February 13, 2020

You can easily set up a geometry model of a roller chain, sprocket, or roller chain sprocket assembly using the built-in parametric geometry parts in the COMSOL Multiphysics Part Library.

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.

Modeling of NDT Methods Using COMSOL Multiphysics®

December 17, 2019

Active thermography, active ultrasonic, guided waves, acoustic emissions, and eddy current testing: 5 examples of how nondestructive testing (NDT) methods can benefit from multiphysics modeling.

Introducing the Metal Processing Module

December 9, 2019

The Metal Processing Module includes 2 interfaces for analyzing diffusive and displacive metallurgical phase transformations: Metal Phase Transformation and Austenite Decomposition.

How to Automate the Setup of Your Multibody System Models

December 5, 2019

The Automated Model Setup functionality includes 2 features that will speed up your modeling process for multibody systems: Create Rigid Domains and Create Gears.

Evaluating Stress and Thermal Expansion in a Portal Crane
