Modeling Droplet Flow in an Open Space with COMSOL Multiphysics®

November 23, 2020

If you are jogging six feet apart from someone else, should you both be wearing masks? Simulation was used to analyze the motion of particles between two runners in an open space to find answers.

Today, home security is a billion dollar industry that relies on smart devices. However, it all started with a nurse who wanted to feel safer in her home in Queens, New York.

It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s…Gravity-Defying Spiders!

October 27, 2020

Spider ballooning, in which spiders float for miles, was originally observed by Charles Darwin in 1832. Since then, researchers from University of Bristol used simulation to study this effect.

The “Tiselius Apparatus” could help determine the isoelectric point, molecular weight, and physical properties of proteins. Learn about the “Father of Electrophoresis” and his accomplishments.

Exploring the 4 Basic Modes of Electrophoresis

August 6, 2020

Zone electrophoresis, moving-boundary electrophoresis, isotachophoresis, and isoelectric focusing. In most cases, the physics of new electrophoretic methods can be related back to these 4 modes.
