Why Do Road and Mountain Bikes Have Different Spoke Patterns?
Why do some bicycle rims come with warnings? Why do some bicyclists prefer rim brakes? To find answers, we model the forces in a bicycle rim for different brake types and spoke lacing patterns.
Modeling Piezoelectricity: Which Module to Use?
Acoustics Module, MEMS Module, Structural Mechanics Module: Which one should you use for your piezoelectric device modeling? Get a comprehensive overview of your options here.
Fore! Analyzing the Performance of a Golf Ball with Simulation
Did you know that golf balls were originally made out of wood? We discuss the evolution of the golf ball and how simulation can be used to analyze modern golf ball designs.
Simulating Wind Load on a Sports Car’s Side Door and Mirror
Vroom vroom: In this blog post, we use large eddy simulation (LES) and structural analysis to analyze wind loads and airflow on the door and side mirror of a sports car driving at high speeds.
What Is the Difference Between Plane Stress and Plane Strain?
We go over the formulations and constitutive models that you can use to study plane stress, plane strain, and generalized plane strain in your solid mechanics problems.
Which Radiation Interface Should I Use for My Heat Transfer Model?
Compared to the mechanisms of heat transfer by conduction and convection, heat transfer by radiation has unique characteristics. How should you account for radiation in your heat transfer models?
Modeling Thermomechanical Fatigue in COMSOL Multiphysics®
You can analyze thermomechanical fatigue in COMSOL Multiphysics® using experimental data from fatigue testing and material parameters from literature. A guest blogger demonstrates…
Modeling Parts Without Constraints in Your Structural Analyses
When building a solid mechanics model, there may be parts with prescribed loads but no constraints that can be reasonably applied. Learn different approaches and considerations for this scenario.
