Predicting How Long Coffee Stays Warm in a Vacuum Flask

October 26, 2017

Do you use a vacuum flask to keep your coffee or tea warm? Try simulating the natural convection cooling in one of these containers to see exactly how long your beverage will stay warm.

Studying the Thermal Performance of Phase Change Materials

September 18, 2017

Certain building materials, like plaster, are enhanced with phase change materials (PCMs) to assist in keeping buildings cool in the summer and warm in the winter. But how effective are they?

Using Simulation to Study Ultrasound Focusing for Clinical Applications

August 31, 2017

Guest blogger Thomas Clavet of EMC3 Consulting discusses the simulation of ultrasound focusing via phased array and geometrically focused probe designs for clinical uses.

Can a Wine Cooler Actually Keep Your Beverage Cold?

August 17, 2017

When enjoying nice meals outside, some people use wine coolers to keep their beverages cold. But can a wine cooler actually keep a bottle of wine chilled, and if so, for how long?

Comparing 2 Approaches for Modeling Electronic Chip Cooling

August 2, 2017

We go over 2 modeling approaches for electronic chip cooling problems. 1 way models the solid parts and a Convective Cooling boundary condition, while the other option includes an air domain.

Optimizing the Design of Thermal Actuators for Use in Microsatellites

July 17, 2017

Microsatellites are replacing traditional large satellites in aerospace missions for gathering scientific data. Using simulation, we can optimize an important component of these devices.

Analyzing Laser Beam-Matter Interaction in Selective Laser Melting

July 4, 2017

Selective laser melting is a common and important process in many types of manufacturing. You can model the interaction between the laser beam and matter for a closer look at this process.
