The Electromechanical Response of a Brake Design
We have the pleasure of introducing guest blogger, Mark Yeoman of Continuum Blue, who showcases what they can do for clients in the electromechanical brake field. Electromechanical brakes come in various designs, including single to multiple friction-face systems, power-off and power-on types, and those that include permanent magnets. With so many options, how do engineers make the right design choices for their application? With COMSOL Multiphysics, this can easily be done. Here, I will show you how.
How to Model Stresses and Strains in COMSOL Multiphysics
We have made a video tutorial for those of you who want to learn how to model stresses and strains in COMSOL Multiphysics. In under five minutes, we walk you through the modeling steps from setting up parameters and geometry to postprocessing the results. For simplicity’s sake, we use a wrench and bolt model to demo the concept.
Intro Model: Studying the Signal Strength of RF Coils
RF coil technology is ubiquitous throughout the world and serves as a major component of technologies, from medical equipment to wireless connectivity. It is important to ensure that the coils contained within these devices transmit information from a source to its destination properly.
Ammonia Synthesis, a Complex and Nonlinear Process
In this final installment of our Chemical Kinetics series, we will look at one of the major chemical syntheses of the modern era. This is a process that every single one of us has benefited from, whether we know it or not: ammonia synthesis. It has become one of the most studied reactions in history, its intricacies and complexities are the subject of several textbooks, and its history is a complex tale of good and evil.

Modeling Superconductivity in a YBCO Wire
Superconductors are used in applications where high current density and magnetic fields are present — including electric generators, biomagnetic technology, and common products, such as fast digital circuits. Theoretically, an unlimited amount of current can flow through a wire made of a superconducting material. However, what happens to a superconductor as the current density exceeds critical limits? Let’s find out.
AMPHOS 21 on Simulating Carbon Sequestration
According to AMPHOS 21, a COMSOL Certified Consultant, one of the proposed solutions to releasing carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere is to store the CO2 in geological formations, a technique referred to as carbon dioxide sequestration. This notion led the engineers at AMPHOS 21 to study the physical and chemical processes that occur during the injection of the gas into earth’s subsurface.
