Award-Winning Papers and Posters: COMSOL Conference 2018 Boston
Award-winning papers and posters from the COMSOL Conference 2018 Boston cover topics including solar-powered steam reforming, 3D-printed check valves, and cochlear implant surgery.
Studying the Peltier and Seebeck Effects in Thermoelectric Devices
We go over 2 key concepts in themoelectricity, the Seebeck and Peltier effects, and how to account for them when simulating heating and cooling in thermoelectric devices.
Optimizing the Performance of a Dielectric Resonator Antenna
Dielectric resonator antennas (DRAs) have a storied history that began in the 1800s. Today, they are used in satellite, radio, and nanophotonics, and even show potential in 5G communications.
Happy Birthday, Hermann von Helmholtz
Hermann von Helmholtz made major contributions to the fields of physiology, optics, electromagnetism, and more. He also notably challenged common perceptions in science using philosophy.
How Do Chladni Plates Make It Possible to Visualize Sound?
Is it possible to see sound? Find out for yourself in this blog post on the acoustics behind Chladni plates.
Happy Birthday, Paul Dirac
Paul Dirac, a British physicist, sought to theorize physical concepts were not able to be explained in words, eventually laying the foundations for quantum theory as we know it today.
Happy Birthday, George de Hevesy
George de Hevesy is known for expanding the uses for X-ray florescence and radioactive isotopes, as well as discovering the chemical element hafnium.
Analyzing a Loudspeaker Array with a Bessel Panel Benchmark Model
Engineers can design optimized loudspeaker arrays and other acoustics systems by analyzing a benchmark model of a Bessel panel system like the one featured in this blog post.
