The Growing Use of Simulation in Pharmaceutical Development
Did you know that the development cycle of a drug can take years and cost millions of dollars? Simulation is 1 way to make pharmaceutical development processes faster and more cost effective.
Why Do Tennis Rackets Tumble? The Dzhanibekov Effect Explained…
If you toss a cellphone, tennis racket, wingnut, cereal box, or any object with 3 axes of rotation in the air, it will demonstrate this interesting and unusual effect…
Modeling Resistor-Controlled Cathodic Protection Systems for Pipelines
Desalination systems and other water treatment facilities rely on pipelines that are subject to internal corrosion. Cathodic protection systems can help protect these pipe systems from corrosion.
Modeling a Pacemaker Electrode in COMSOL Multiphysics®
What happens when the heart doesn’t pump the way it should? Pacemakers maintain the heart rate by monitoring natural electrical signals. Pacemaker electrodes are a key part of these devices.
Simulating the Carburization and Quenching of a Steel Gear
Gears are typically carburized and quenched to improve their fatigue durability and wear resistance. Simulation can help determine how these processes affect the gear’s residual stress state.
Analyzing the Impact of a Melting Frozen Inclusion
One example of the effects of climate change is the melting of permafrost in northern boreal regions. In this blog post, we show an example of a melting frozen inclusion in a porous medium.
Happy Birthday, Joseph-Louis Lagrange
Calculus of variations, Lagrange multipliers, deforming geometries, and Lagrange polynomials — These are just a few of Joseph-Louis Lagrange’s many contributions to the world of mathematics.
