Studying Stress in Threaded Pipe Fitting Designs from CAD Assemblies

May 30, 2017

Threaded pipes are durable, reliable, and resistant to damage from heat and stress. You can combine a CAD assembly of a threaded pipe with a COMSOL Multiphysics® analysis to study its design.

Analyzing the Mechanical Performance of a Tricycle Frame Design

April 19, 2017

Tricycles have 3 wheels and countless uses due to their extra support and load capacity. Design a tricycle that meets safety requirements by analyzing its mechanical performance.

Designing a Sensor Package for a High-G Accelerometer via Simulation

March 28, 2017

To design a piezoresistive sensor package for a high-G accelerometer, researchers turned to multiphysics analysis. They then verified the simulation results with experimental data.

How to Analyze Beam Sections Using the Beam Section Calculator

February 28, 2017

Simulation applications can be used as utility tools to compute the properties and parameters of a component or device. In this example, the application analyzes beam section geometries.

How to Analyze Your SOLIDWORKS® Designs with an App

November 24, 2016

For many years, it’s been possible to analyze synchronized CAD geometries in COMSOL Multiphysics® via the LiveLink™ interfacing products. But did you know that you can also incorporate this functionality into an easy-to-use simulation app? With an app, you can dynamically modify your geometry in a CAD program such as SOLIDWORKS® and use this information to analyze new product designs. Today, we will demonstrate how to do so, using the new Bike Frame Analyzer app as an example.

AltaSim Uses Simulation to Improve Bolometer Sensitivity

June 15, 2016

Bolometers have the ability to detect and measure the power of incident electromagnetic radiation. This allows them to be used in a range of technologies, from night vision cameras to far-reaching astronomy projects. Designing bolometers often requires devoting a lot of time and energy to the development phase, as these devices must be optimized for sensitivity and customized for their specific applications. To efficiently design bolometers with increased sensitivity, AltaSim Technologies utilized the simulation capabilities of COMSOL Multiphysics.

Which Module Should I Choose for Working with My CAD Data?

April 14, 2015

There are several different add-on modules to the COMSOL Multiphysics® software for working with external CAD and ECAD data. These modules allow both unidirectional and bidirectional data transfer between the COMSOL Multiphysics analysis tools and the CAD and ECAD software that you are using for design. In this blog post, we will cover the functionality of these various modules and describe why you may want to use them.

Bringing Multiphysics into Architecture

January 7, 2015

Architects cannot just be artists. A new building must not only be aesthetically pleasing but also structurally sound. In the design of modern buildings, great attention is paid to concepts such as environmental comfort and energy efficiency. With a range of physical problems to address in the transition from a building’s concept to a completed design, the 21st century architect may turn to multiphysics software.
