Computing the HRTF of a Scanned Geometry of a Human Head
Designing cochlear implants, hearing aids, headphones, and other audio devices requires precise measurements of the head-related transfer function (HRTF). Simulation and geometry import can help.
Using 3D Models to Investigate Inductive Effects in a Submarine Cable
It takes a modern desktop computer ~30 minutes to compute a 3D cable model with twisted magnetic armor. Consequently, 3D cable models are replacing empirical models in the power cable industry.
