Finding the Best Way to Make Crêpes with Fluid Dynamics Research

November 6, 2019

The recipe for the perfect crêpe calls for flour, eggs, milk, sugar, butter, and…simulation? Fluid dynamicists used simulation to solve the optimal coverage problem for crêpe making.

The Importance of Thermal Radiation in Your Models

August 23, 2019

Conduction and convection tend to get more attention from simulation engineers, but radiation plays an important role as well. Learn how (and why) to account for thermal radiation in your models.

4 Methods to Account for Radiation in Participating Media

May 22, 2019

The discrete ordinates method, P1 approximation, Rosseland approximation, or the Beer–Lambert law: Which should you use to analyze heat transfer in participating media?

Heat Transfer with Radiation in Participating Media and the Discrete Ordinates Method

May 8, 2019

Here’s your complete guide to the discrete ordinates method, quadrature sets, and how to model the interaction between radiation and a participating or absorbing medium.

Comparing Optimization Methods for a Heat Sink Design for 3D Printing

April 18, 2019

When designing a heat sink, is it better to use parametric or topology optimization? When manufacturing said design, does 3D printing produce the best result, or a conventional method?
