Happy Birthday, Hendrik Lorentz

July 18, 2018

Hendrik Lorentz won the Nobel Prize for his work in electron theory, but that only one of the many contributions he made to theoretical physics, electromagnetism, and optics.

Analyzing Cyclic Voltammetry at a Microdisk Electrode with Simulation

July 3, 2018

What is cyclic voltammetry, and why is it important in the design of microdisk electrodes? We discuss all of this and more in this electrochemical engineering blog post.

Analyzing Fine Chemical Production in Plate Reactors

June 27, 2018

Batch reactors, continuous reactors, plate reactors, oh my. Here, we discuss analyzing the fine chemical production process in a plate reactor using chemical modeling.

Happy Birthday, Henry Darcy

June 10, 2018

Henry Darcy was a civil engineer whose study of fluid dynamics led to the formulation of the equation now known as Darcy’s law. It also helped supply his small town in France with drinking water.

Optimizing Combustion Particle Control in an Electric Filter Design

June 5, 2018

To optimize the design of an electrostatic filter, researchers from Switzerland used multiphysics modeling, validating their results by comparing them to experimental data.

Analyzing Multiphase Flow in an Airlift Loop Reactor Benchmark Model

May 23, 2018

This blog post features a benchmark model of an airlift loop reactor that validates the use of CFD simulation for analyzing multiphase flow.

Happy Birthday, Gustave-Gaspard Coriolis

May 21, 2018

Gustave-Gaspard Coriolis’s research into mechanical systems has had far-reaching effects. In fact, the Coriolis effect is used to describe the rotation of Earth, which can be observed from space.

Analyzing Operating Mode Options for Helical Antennas

May 3, 2018

Simple but effective, helical antennas are used in smart implants, RFID, radio, GPS, space probes, and more. You can use RF simulation to analyze the operating mode options for these antennas.
