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.

Defeating Giant Movie Monsters Using Mathematical Modeling

August 5, 2019

The predator-prey equation can predict how we’d fare in a monster invasion, as well as real-world biology and ecology scenarios like shark overpopulation and tumor movement.

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.

Optimizing the Geometry of Optical Antennas with Genetic Algorithms

September 12, 2017

What does antenna design have to do with the concept of natural selection? Although it may sound far-fetched, the basic principles of natural selection can be used to optimize antenna geometries.

Studying the Migration of Mineral Oil Hydrocarbons in Food Packaging

November 17, 2016

Food packaging is often composed of recycled materials, like newspapers or plastic, which may contain residual mineral oil inks. Traces of these potentially hazardous substances leftover from the recycled materials can migrate from the packaging to the stored food. To account for this, one research team developed a numerical model to analyze the migration patterns of mineral oil hydrocarbons for various packaging situations. Compared to experimental studies, their approach offers a more efficient and cost-effective way of optimizing food safety.

Simulating a 3D Multilayered Graphene Biosensor Design

May 2, 2016

Graphene is a material with a strong presence — and impact — throughout the scientific community. Amongst its many uses, researchers are looking to graphene as a potential material solution within sensor designs for medical and biosensing applications. Today, we’ll explore the role of simulation in analyzing and optimizing a 3D multilayered graphene biosensor.

A Strategy for Designing Corrosion-Resistant Materials

September 3, 2014

Billions of dollars are spent each year in the U.S. to repair corrosion damage. To help reduce the high cost of corrosion, engineers at the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) in Washington, D.C. are using multiphysics simulation to gain a better understanding of the fundamental mechanism. A successful research outcome at NRL will establish the correlation between metal microstructure, corrosion, and mechanical strength. Material designers could then develop stronger, corrosion-resistant materials using this new information.

Automatically Handling Selections in COMSOL Multiphysics®

July 2, 2014

This is Part 3 of a blog series on how to handle selections and entity numbers when using LiveLink™ for MATLAB® and the COMSOL® Application Programming Interface (API). In this section, I’ll discuss how the internal handling of selections and entity numbers in COMSOL Multiphysics® simulation software is performed and how you can utilize these methods when setting up your own models.
